What do we mean by collective wellbeing?

For Carnegie UK, collective wellbeing is about everyone having what they need to live well now and in the future. We have identified four aspects of collective wellbeing:

  • Social wellbeing: We all have the support and services we need to thrive.
  • Economic wellbeing: We all have a decent minimum living standard.
  • Environmental wellbeing: We all live within the planet’s natural resources.
  • Democratic wellbeing: We all have a voice in decisions that affect us.

We want a good and sustainable quality of life for everyone in the UK and Ireland.

To us that means looking at personal wellbeing, the wellbeing of our local community, and the wellbeing of society as a whole.
