Why do we need to re-think prosperity for London?
This film describes IGP's research with citizen scientists to explore what prosperity means to people living and working in East London. 
Featuring London Prosperity Board partners and citizen scientists, the film challenges the orthodox definition of prosperity as wealth and economic growth and shows how secure livelihoods, healthy neighbourhoods, and a voice in local decision-making matter to peoples' prosperity.
