Special Event Invitation: Measuring Progress: Online Forum on Well-Being

8 Jun 2021 11:40 AM | Jill Johnson (Administrator)

Measuring Progress: Online Forum on Well-Being
June 16, June 28, June 29

Measuring Progress - Statistics Portal // Luxembourg - STATEC Research (public.lu)

This international event will bring together leading thinkers to discuss the quest for better lives. Economists traditionally advocated economic growth as the foremost policy goal, but now even economists often challenge this view. How should we measure progress? The discussion remains open, indeed flourishes, with more contributors than ever.

The event contributes broadly to this discussion. Preeminent authors from the well-being and quality-of-life fields will give six talks over three days. Talks will focus on their current research and include both the broader background and policy implications. At the end of each session, time will be reserved for questions and answers.
