The Institute of Global Prosperity launched

UCL6UCL’s Institute of Global Prosperity was officially launched on the 1st October. Under the leadership of Henrietta L. Moore the IGP aims to transform how we make decisions, the kinds of evidence and reasoning on which our decisions are based, and the tools (cultural, policy, legal) we have at our disposal.

We need a complete understanding of what long-term prosperity and wellbeing is and how it can be achieved.  Professor Henrietta Moore explains: “Sustainable prosperity is the major challenge of our age. We need to pull together intellectual and imaginative resources for the sake of generations to come.”

Through its events programme, the UCL Institute for Global Prosperity aims to open up the debate on the most pressing challenge of our age – achieving long-term prosperity for the whole of humankind.
