The idea for this group was first developed at Scotland’s Inclusive Growth conference held at the University of Glasgow on 20th of October 2017.  Heads of Governments, Ministers and high-ranking officials came together to discuss the potential benefits of such a group.

Since then, two seperate meetings have been hosted by the Scottish Government to discuss the practicalities of setting up a network and to identify areas of shared interest to explore further in the Policy Lab.

In November 2018, the WEGo Policy Lab will be presented at the OECD’s 6th World Forum on the Future of Wellbeing.
