For years, the OECD has been examining and promoting wellbeing as a cornerstone of policy-making, to get us beyond the use of GDP as a sole measure.

Throughout this process, they’ve aimed to be inclusive and shed light on the fact that wellbeing is both personal and collective. They developed the Better Life Index, an online tool to engage with citizens and learn what matters most for their quality of life in an effort to complement official statistics.

To move towards greater wellbeing, we must work together to keep the dialogue going and strengthen the connection between people and policy-making. This workshop explores ways to connect the public, policy and politics to deliver on this mission.
