Welcome to the Network of Wellbeing’s new website design! To find out more about the new site and to help you find your way around click here for further information.
Wellbeing is a big concept that includes but goes beyond personal health and happiness to embrace the environmental wellbeing of the planet upon which we all depend:
As Satish Kumar points out in the video above, “We cannot have wellbeing alone…. Wellbeing starts with the personal and intimate and expands wider and wider to the ultimate”.
The Network of Wellbeing (NOW) is an independent organisation that works to promote, distil and apply best practice in the field of wellbeing with individuals, communities and organisations.
Our aspiration is for wellbeing to be embedded in communities everywhere.
We aspire to a world where as many people as possible have meaningful healthy lives. By applying, promoting and sharing wellbeing practice, experience and information we intend to impact the wellbeing of our own and other communities. And in doing so we also hope to support policy makers in using wellbeing as a significant measure of prosperity.
Our vision is of a world where everyone’s wellbeing needs can be met within the planet’s natural resource limits.
Wellbeing is an inseparable result of how we live, how we are embedded within our wider society, the health of our society and our environment. Our intention is to learn from and cultivate innovative practice and develop replicable models that might inspire others to develop wellbeing in their own communities and networks.
We work both locally and globally
Our international work aspires to develop a global network of wellbeing. We are exploring Global links and have also set up the Wellbeing Ambassadors global volunteer programme, to help us to share information and resources with wider audiences.
We invite you to learn more about wellbeing, build your own wellbeing network and link with ours.
