Ongoing analyses, worked out in collaboration with academic and non-academic project participants, point to the necessity of conceptualizing materiality and space as integral to relational notions of subjectivity, and herewith individual and collective possibilities for promoting well-being. In particular, children’s practices of striving towards well-being underline the necessity to inquire into and renegotiate the very ontology of well-being together with one another. Foremost, well-being does not necessarily imply harmony sensu the absence of conflict: Well-being is a transgenerational, collaborative as well as contested and conflictual process, and thus rather to be termed ‘teleogenetic well-becoming’.
The paper argues that if children are truly understood as agentic and relational beings, psychology’s task is to co-develop concepts that establish malleable institutional spaces that invite all stakeholders, irrespective of age, to support the critical inquiry and conceptual negotiation of one another’s well-being in ethically sustainable ways.
