At the heart of any form of prosperity lie the desires, aspirations, needs and capabilities of ordinary people, which help to inform ideas of what constitutes a good life. Yet it is clear that visions of a good life, and good work are also shaped by aspects of locality, and along lines of social difference. Exploring diverse visions of the good life, and how these vary within different contexts, settings and at different points of the lifecourse, underpins our work within CUSP – the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity.
