Welcome to the Global Progress Research Network (GPRNet) Wikiprogress page! We are aiming with this page to be the central point for a large number of people across the world who are interested in the ideas and the research to support changing the paradigm of progress, from increasing economic production to increasing equitable and environmentally sustainable well-being. We want this above all to be a cross-disciplinary network and a means for exchanging ideas and research that can be put into action. There has been a lot of good work done in these areas and what we are aiming to do is bring together the people and the knowledge in a central point for the free exchange of information and action.

We are working towards striking the balance of achieving progress which incorporates economic strength, environmental sustainability, equity and social well-being.
