Santa Monica’s Wellbeing Project can be summed up in 3 words: Define. Measure. Act.
We will define wellbeing as it relates to our community.
We will create a new tool to measure wellbeing in our community.
We will act on this information by using it to guide work to intentionally improve the conditions needed for people to thrive.
We received several thoughtful proposals in response to our RFP for Local Wellbeing Index Development (deadline was 10/1/13 at 5 pm). Thank you to all who participated and invested time in this process. We expect to bring a recommendation to City Council in November. Development of the Local Wellbeing Index will commence later this year.
The Wellbeing Project is Santa Monica’s winning entry in Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Mayors Challenge.
