We’re thrilled to be launching the 2019 edition of the Thriving Places Index, a new way to understand the strengths and challenges of where you live.
The 2019 results for 373 local authorities in England and Wales are now live at www.thrivingplacesindex.org as well as maps and reports with analysis from the 2019 scores.
This year, we have strengthened the sustainability and equality domains to underline the vital importance of delivering the conditions for wellbeing in a way that challenges current power imbalances and recognises the rights of future generations.
In addition the TPI is now available for all upper and second tier local authorities in England AND Wales – a growth of 217% coverage from 2018 (172 to 373 LA areas) – painting a more detailed picture of how the UK is growing places for citizens to thrive.
Created by Happy City, the Thriving Places Index is designed to provide a robust reporting framework that shows the conditions for wellbeing at a local level. It radically challenges the current paradigm that defines progress by purely economic and financial means. Instead of focusing on just growing consumption and wealth for a few, the Thriving Places Index focuses on all the things that help people and places to do well.
The website has also had a refresh with enhanced functionality and new-look scorecards – head there to see your local area’s results now.
