Year: 2021

The Centre for Thriving Places (supported by Carnegie UK Trust and Power to Change) has undertaken research and consultation to get to the heart of what is needed to make a Wellbeing Approach a practical reality in towns today. We have adapted the highly regarded Thriving Places Index Framework to provide the basis for both a way of working and a new set of measures of success for decision makers interested in long term place making fit for the 21st Century.

The report provides an overview of the relevance of wellbeing economy thinking to towns, outlines the key ingredients for a successful Wellbeing Economy approach, discusses the barriers to progress (and ways to overcome them) and identifies key next steps required to provide the support and tools for widespread adoption
