The Wellbeing Project
Ashoka is a co-creator of the Wellbeing Project, which aims to shift the culture of the social change field to one that encompasses inner wellbeing, catalyzing an infrastructure of support for everyone in the field.
Wellbeing inspires welldoing: the profound connection between how our relationship with ourselves deeply influences the way we are in the world.
We are hearing changemakers around the world express the pressing need for support with their wellbeing. Our work highlights how wellbeing needs to be fundamentally prioritized both for each individual changemaker and because of how it shapes the way social change happens.
The Wellbeing Project is a global initiative focused on shifting the culture of the social change field to one oriented towards inner wellbeing and catalyzing an infrastructure of support for everyone in the field. The Project is co-created with leading social change institutions and is a community of many of the key global and regional social change leaders and organizations.
We see an incredible opportunity to cultivate a social change culture that is more human-centered and at the same time unlock more of the extraordinary collaboration and innovation we need to address our great social and environmental challenges.
The Wellbeing Project is cultivating a shift in the culture of the field toward one that is healthier and supportive of inner wellbeing for all those working to effect social change. The project is structured in four pillars which all play a vital role and contribute to the larger mission of supporting and growing the wellbeing movement:
- Inner Development Program
- Research and Development
- Learning and Convening
