Wellbeing in Public Policy Practice
Around the world governments are recognising that there is more to life – and government – than GDP. The Australian Government Treasury has developed a well-being framework for evaluating policy and outcomes, and the Australian Bureau of Statistics has developed a project named Measuring Australia’s Progress. This is the last in a series of three seminars about social and environmental measures for public policy. The panel will discuss how well-being frameworks might develop in Australia, how they are already being used in practice, and how they might influence the future development of public policy.
