Working session 3.6. : Wellbeing and Happiness as policy tools and drivers of the economy

The goal of the economy should be to contribute to improve wellbeing and happiness. However, the main macro-economic indicators such as the Gross Domestic Product do not provide useful information about these issues.

During this session we will discover several international good practices aimed at using wellbeing and happiness as policy tools. Based on experiences such as the Gross National Happiness of Buthan, the Happiness Planet Index of the New Economics Foundation or the Common Good Index of the Economy for the Common Good participants will identify how to adapt and implement these tools in both the local and national level.
