Prof Henrietta Moore, Director of the Institute for Global Prosperity (IGP) at UCL, chairs one of the sessions themed on"Re-imagining urban livelihoods"
Re-imagining urban livelihoods through community-led research and capacity building on prosperity and collective enterprise development.
As an extension of the unequal distribution of material living conditions in urban areas, this theme focuses specifically on urban livelihoods. It seeks to shift the traditional economic focus in four ways: first by arguing for a shift from traditional economic definitions to a broader notion of prosperity as flourishing; second, by exploring the collective development and potential of social enterprises, linked to emerging urban sectors and/or addressing pressing urban problems; third, by exploring the potential of social enterprises based on recycling; and finally, by proposing alternative methodologies for co-producing knowledge and practice in across the previous sub-themes.
