Understanding Liveability to Advance Quality of Life
Australia, like many peer nations, has woken up to the fact that we need to understand and measure prosperity in terms broader than GDP. Our leadership – political, social, corporate – is demonstrating this shift by placing more emphasis on community wellbeing in decision making.
And, while previous generations may have seen investment in wellbeing as being in conflict with traditional economic measures of progress, contemporary sentiment acknowledges that such things work better in concert.
Liveability is a central pillar of the wellbeing movement and our latest ebook Understanding Liveability to Advance Quality of Life outlines four things that we believe are important considerations for policy makers who are seeking to make a contribution in this space:
- a resident centric approach
- studied at sensibly small area geographies
- comparing for context
- monitoring for impact
This ebook has been published in support of our latest offer into local government, Living in Place.
