From a shared vision to inclusive implementation: Innovation approaches to developing government frameworks on wellbeing
Author: Carnegie UK Trust
On 18 May 2017, the Carnegie UK Trust and the OECD convened a roundtable with attendees from around the world interested in understanding and measuring wellbeing. Governments at national and sub-national levels were represented, as well as participants from independent agencies. The purpose of the event was to share learning and experience through discussing the successes and challenges of developing strategies that go beyond economic targets to embrace a wellbeing perspective on progress, and translating this into policy action.
This paper includes details on different approaches to wellbeing shared by our roundtable participants, and sets out some of the key themes from discussions that are important for furthering a wellbeing agenda.
