How do we measure Parkdale’s wellbeing?
Attend the Parkdale Wellbeing Indicator Development Workshop
This project is a community-based planning initiative to develop a long-term neighbourhood plan for Parkdale. The project foregrounds participatory planning process and resident engagement for visioning and shaping the future of Parkdale that we want to create together. The project is organizing a series of workshops to discuss challenges, assets, and strategies for building a healthy neighbourhood and community shared wealth. The first workshop is on developing neighbourhood wellbeing indicators.
Measuring what matters to our wellbeing
How do we measure progress of our neighbourhood and local economy? GDP is often used as a standard measure of economic activities, but it is limited because it fails to attend to complex social and cultural factors that equally matter to our wellbeing and local economy. Then, how can we know how well we are living? How do we define ‘progress’? What is important to our decent working lives? These are some of the questions that we will explore in this workshop.
Please join the workshop!
