Global context

Leading experts across economics, psychology, sustainable development, survey analysis, national statistics, health, public policy and more – are demonstrating how measurements of wellbeing can be used effectively to assess progress. They reflect a new worldwide demand for more attention to happiness as a criteria for policy.

From the World Happiness Report, to the OECD Better Life Index , to the Happy Planet Index , and the UK government’s Wellbeing work , there is an ever growing movement towards a new way of defining and measuring our progress, other than the mere accumulation of wealth or consumption.

Happy City is at the vanguard of this work at a local level, and its measurement and policy tools can support cities everywhere to make this shift together.
