A rich life in the Basque Country that seeks to accumulate technological apparatus, clothing and objects in general, but not the well-being itself.

What it is to live well and be happy is understood very differently according to culture, age, age. Capitalism has led us to believe that happiness is linked to many things, but scientific research has shown that well-being has little to do with it. Human well-being requires equity and satisfaction of basic needs, but happiness has been shown to have nothing to do with the accumulation of wealth. Social relations satisfy us much more than material wealth, the possibility of learning what one wants, satisfaction with life, tranquility, balance between work and personal life, commitments to society, access to green spaces…

It may be useful to see that consumerism, far from being a path to well-being, has made us dependent. Seeing that this consumerist and capitalist view of well-being is a fallacy helps to redefine well-being from now on. What makes you really happy? Where are your abuses? Can you give up this consumerist life that is wasting the planet?

The answers leave little room for doubt: welfare is perfectly compatible with a sustainable life.
