The Well-being Framework for Ireland is the result of a Programme for Government commitment to develop a set of quality of life measures to create a holistic view of how Irish society is faring. In July of this year, the Government published the First Report on a Well-being Framework for Ireland. It captures phase one of the work on developing a national framework and sets out the guiding vision and ambitions. It includes an initial conceptual framework and supporting dashboard of indicators, which will evolve and improve over time. It was supported by initial consultation via NESC, who compiled a complementary Consultation Report.
A wider public conversation on Ireland’s Wellbeing Framework has been launched as part of the second phase of this work. The Government wants to create awareness and gain feedback to improve the Framework and ensure it is reflective of the issues that matter most to the Irish people. We are eager to spread the word and hear from people right across Irish society.
Citizens, stakeholders, policy makers and researchers can get involved by:
- Visiting the Well-being Web Portal and becoming familiar with the Framework;
- Telling us what well-being means to you and what your priorities are by taking our short survey; and
- Exploring the supporting interactive CSO Well-being Information Hub
