Around the world governments and community organisations are using wellbeing to improve their policies and practices. The Carnegie UK Trust, taking its lead from the Stiglitz-Sen-Fitoussi Commission and from our own international research (Shifting the Dial), believes that wellbeing provides a way for decision-makers to better understand the potential impact of their work on citizens, leading to more joined-up and preventative working. Many of those doing this work are ‘hidden’ to the international wellbeing community, they are not statisticians or academics or experts, but people using the concepts to affect change in their own areas. The Carnegie UK Trust has been working with the OECD to understand some of these examples in more detail. But we need to hear from more of you. We would like to gather evidence from around the globe on using wellbeing in policy and practice to highlight it and celebrate your success. To do this we want to compile a database of good practice on wellbeing in policy and practice. We are offering a prize of GBP 1,000 to the initiative we deem as the most impactful. If you have a good example we could include in our databases please fill out the online form below. All submissions will be considered for our database and but closing date for the prize is December 16th 2016.

Cities and regions face particular challenges in developing wellbeing frameworks. Carnegie Associate Pippa Coutts, in partnership with the OECD Regional Development Policy Division, has developed straightforward guidance for cities and regions that want to develop their own wellbeing frameworks to measure progress and prioritise resources. The next stage of the project is to gather further evidence from around the globe on using wellbeing in policy and practice at all levels – community, local government, neighbourhoods, cities and regions. We have established a ‘crowdsourcing’ system to collect international examples. Our hope is that we will uncover examples of innovation, which we will share. Help us build a bank of good practice examples, and submit your wellbeing framework below.

The International Panel for Social Progress is seeking your comments on the many chapters that cover a diverse range of topics regarding fostering social progress worldwide. Read the description detailing the scope and components of the report and find a link to the report where you can make your comments below. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Human beings are social beings. Social justice encompasses a range of concerns including individual wellbeing, disparities in wellbeing, resources and power, expression and exercise of human agency and voice as individuals and as groups. Societies are being impacted profoundly in current times by a number of interconnected forces: -the weakening of the traditional nation state and the rise of transnational issues through the easier and greater flows of capital, finance and labour -powerful forces of technical change which are altering the world of work and the power relations between capital and labour, and between different types of labour, profound and unequal transformations in health and education outcomes, and falls in income poverty in many emerging economies, but rising inequalities of wealth and income within countries, and the leaving behind of groups within countries and entire groups of countries -contestations between the religious and the secular, and conflicts between religious identities -post cold war conflicts and insecurities within and between nations Taking account of this context, the issues covered by the Panel are wide ranging, and include: 1) Democracy and Citizenship 2) Poverty, Inequality and Well-Being 3) Global Risks, Resources 4) Markets, Finance and Corporations 5) Private and Public Governance 6) The Future of Work 7) Violence, Peace and Security 8) Global Health 9) Religions and Secularisms 10) Gender-Family-Reproduction-Sexuality 11) Urban Issues, Urban-Rural Relations 12) Education, Communication and Media Moreover, four cross-cutting themes will be weaved through the report: (i) technology and innovation, (ii) globalization, (iii) social movements, (iv) identity/community. These themes function as transversal perspectives that, in the contemporary context, bear upon all twelve identified issues and hence should frame our approach to challenges and opportunities in those different areas of social life. Each of these broad topics needs to be further specified and clarified and the debates assessed, and major policy implications drawn, all by an interdisciplinary team of social scientists each of whom is willing and able to engage across disciplines to inform policy makers and social actors on what the best social science can, and cannot, say on the topic. For each of these topics, the report will examine the following three questions: 1) What is the current situation and what are the historical and prospective trends? 2) What direction of change can be inspired by the search for social justice? 3) What are the drivers and barriers for such a change?

The IPSP Report gathers the state-of-the-art knowledge about the desirability and possibility of all relevant forms of structural social change. It synthesizes the knowledge on the principles, possibilities, and methods for improving the main institutions of the modern societies. The IPSP Report seeks consensus whenever possible but does not hide controversies and honestly presents up-to-date arguments and analyses, and debates about them. The IPSP Report does not cover all social issues and all social policies, but focuses on the most important issues involving substantial changes and bearing on the long run perspective. The IPSP Report draws on the competence of a few hundred academics (of all relevant disciplines, perspectives, and regions of the world) willing and able to engage in a true interdisciplinary dialogue on key dimensions of social progress. The IPSP Report, to be completed in 2017, will be addressed to all social actors, movements, organizations, politicians and decision-makers, in order to provide them with the best expertise on questions that bear on social change.
