CARE AS SOCIAL
Imagine an economy that is based on care, where economic policies see care as a foundational value rather than a cost to be cut. Imagine a society where care facilitates human creativity that contributes to our interdependent wellbeing.
Care is the net that holds human societies together. Yet care work is poorly funded. The elderly are no longer receiving the care they need. The young are financially insecure and cannot imagine what will happen to them in old age. To many, the idea of retiring into wellbeing feels increasingly remote.
The Institute of Care is engaged with economic questions and will be working together with communities to see how our visions for care will be part of our future.
