[Return to previous page]

The Government's response to the Environmental Audit Committee's Fifteenth Report of session 2013-14 cites the work with Sciencewise on wellbeing (para 27):

"Aside from consideration of the formal screening process the government does agree with the Committee that more could be done to support pro-active consideration in decision making. In this respect it is important to highlight our partnership with Sciencewise to run public dialogues on a number of policy areas framed around well-being. The outputs from this project will be available later this year and will result in a toolkit to enable policy makers to run dialogues themselves to proactively incorporate well-being science into decision making.making."
