The journey from poverty to prosperity is widely measured by and credited to the growth in a country’s GDP. But what if there is more to consider? What about the needs which this doesn’t address – a healthy family life, civic participation, and freedom from discrimination or exploitation?
Using Christian Aid’s An Unquenchable Thirst report, St Paul’s Institute and Christian Aid brought together a panel of experts in economics, business, social metrics and theology to discuss ways to track, measure and celebrate human flourishing.
The Speakers were:
- Amanda Mukwashi, Christian Aid
- Professor Jagjit Chadha, National Institute for Economic and Social Research (NIESR)
- Danny Kruger, Expert Adviser on Civil Society, HM Government
- Cal Baliey, SALT Network
- Christine Allen, Christian Aid (convenor)
