WE WERE DESIGNED TO FLOURISH – SO WHAT'S GONE WRONG?
Tuesday 21/05/2019 7.00PM - 8.30PM
How we can we help create a better world for our children and grandchildren? What makes a 'good life'? How can those in power support the development of flourishing communities and an equitable, sustainable and stable planet, and what can we do to make our local community become more vibrant, sustainable and resilient?
Amidst shocking statistics on children’s declining mental and emotional health in the UK, here is a beacon of hope. In this inspiring talk Wendy explains how her Flourish Model - which has gained substantial interest in several countries already - puts forward an ‘ecology of human wellbeing’ that puts lives of meaning, purpose and value back at the core, and the natural, healthy development of young children as fundamental to this process.
Wendy Ellyatt, founder of the Save Childhood Movement and National Children’s Day UK as well as the Cheltenham Connect community initiative, is passionate about unlocking the potential in people.
For the last thirty years she has been exploring the unique qualities of human learning and development, with a particular emphasis on what gives us meaning and purpose. Her studies have taken her from being a specialist in the foundational importance of early learning, to examining early years policymaking, international perspectives, natural systems dynamics and the importance of family and community life for the creation of sustainable societies and lifelong learning.
