The aim of the contest is to show how well-being gives a more meaningful picture of progress in societies than more traditional growth-oriented approaches, such as GDP; and to use their creativity to communicate key ideas about well-being to the general public.
Entrants to the competition should take one or more of the following questions on board:
- How do well-being levels vary between countries, or within countries?
- How do well-being levels vary for different population groups, e.g. for young people, the elderly, by gender, etc.?
- Why is it important to look beyond purely economic indicators, such as GDP, for a better picture of people’s current or future well-being?
- How can the multi-dimensionality of well-being be effectively communicated to the general public?
Deadline for entering the competition: 24 August, 2015
