A successful society is one where economic activity delivers high levels of sustainable well-being for all its citizens. NEF has been researching well-being – how people experience their lives and flourish - for over a decade. Our work seeks to understand, measure and positively influence well-being, develop ways of integrating it into policy, and promoting it as an alternative measure of progress.
