Be Different. Make A Difference.
Creating a Wellbeing Economy for All
Our vision is an economy where we meet the needs of all people within the means of a living planet. We recognize that we cannot solve the multiple and interconnected crises facing us all without transforming our current economic system. Inspired by the principles of ecological economics and the UN Sustainable Development goals, we have been exploring the growing global movement of communities, businesses, cities, and countries who are gathering around the Doughnut Economics framework, the Wellbeing Economy Alliance movement, the Circular Economy movement, and others like it.
To align the actions of public, private and non-profit organizations so that by 2035 Vermont’s social foundations are met for all, within the ecological ceiling of the planet; in essence, Vermont citizens self-report high levels of well-being and our state’s metrics are solidly “inside the doughnut”.
To mobilize Vermont policy makers to solve complex crises (e.g., housing, income inequality, workforce development, climate change) by taking an interconnected systems approach to societal and economic change.
The Vermont Prosperity Project is currently a partnership between the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund, UVM GUND Institute for Environment, Abundant Sun LLC, Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, Public Assets Institute, Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WEAll), Recovery Vermont, and the Vermont Council on Rural Development.
