The European Commission, European Parliament, Club of Rome, OECD and WWF will host a high-level conference with the objectives of clarifying which indices are most appropriate to measure progress, and how these can best be integrated into the decision-making process and taken up by public debate.
The conference will bring together high-level experts and policy makers to address these critical issues. Over 300 people from economic, social and environmental spheres from across the globe will attend.
Preceding the main political conference, an expert workshop will be held, where leading practitioners will consider progress in the development and policy application of indicators of progress, true wealth, and well-being.
The conference will feature several high-level speakers, including internationally recognized leaders and government representatives, members of the European Parliament as well as speakers from civil society, think tanks, industry, and key institutions such as the World Bank and the United Nations. European Commissioners Joaquín Almunia and Stavros Dimas have confirmed they will speak.
Participation is by invitation only. If you would like to request an invitation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
