Building the Mental Wealth of Nations

EBC Executive Director, Frédéric Destrebecq, contributed to the session ‘Building Mental Wealth – threat and possible solutions’providing an overview about what is mental wealth and how it can be measured and improved.

The event was organized by the Mental Wealth Initiative at the University of Sydney. Our vision is to move towards a mentally and socially thriving world. We believe the wealth of a nation is not just based on economic prosperity. National prosperity must be inclusive of social production and the mental health and wellbeing of communities

Today we face unprecedented challenges as climate change re-shapes our borders and our boundaries. Now, more than ever, we need to bring people together from all industries to collaborate and find solutions to protect and enhance the mental wealth of our nations.
