The network of Wellbeing Economy Governments (WEGo) facilitates the sharing of experience and expertise among officials working to embed wellbeing outcomes in economic policy.
The first public meeting of the group will take place at the OECD’s 6th World Forum on 28th November 2018. Officials from the Governments of Scotland, Iceland and New Zealand will present the work being undertaken in their respective areas to operationalise wellbeing in practice and show how the Policy Lab, through which policy exchange will take place, will operate.
Policy Lab discussions will begin in 2019 with the aim of delivering the group objectives:
COLLABORATE in pursuit of innovative policy approaches that embeds wellbeing outcomes in economic policy.
PROGRESS toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in line with Goal 17, fostering partnership and cooperation to identify approaches to delivering wellbeing.
ADDRESS the pressing economic, social and environmental challenges of our time.
