THE NEW INSTITUTE and the Global Solutions Initiative are collaboratively hosting a workshop series on “Measuring Prosperity”.
The workshop series will attract major contributors to the measurement of economic performance beyond GDP and the measurement of business performance beyond shareholder value. In both these domains, the environmental and social effects of economic activity will be taken into consistent account. The aim of the workshop series is to bring the measurement of prosperity in these two domains into consonance, as a prelude to the consistent assessment of government policy and business reporting. This assessment is meant to be a foundation for exploring new approaches to the formulation of government policies and business strategies in the service of human wellbeing.
The workshop series is part of the Socio-Economic Transformation programme at THE NEW INSTITUTE and draws on the networks of the Global Solutions Initiative, including the Council for Global Problem-Solving and the Young Global Changers.
