In this sixth symposium ‘Measuring wellbeing for effective place-making’, we will explore how to measure well-being, including establishing key indicators and developing best practice standards and metrics. Small groups will discuss: What is happening? What needs improving? What do we want to happen? Through a series of activities participants will consider:

1. How should we measure well-being? How do we distinguish between identifying what people perceive well-being to be from the factors that actually impact on wellbeing?
2. What measures (indicators and related metrics) are appropriate for different contexts/schemes?
3. What kinds of approaches are needed for evaluating the contribution of place making to well-being?
4. How can the evaluation of wellbeing of collaborative community place-making approaches be better integrated?

This one day event with The University of Dundee, Centre for Environmental Change and Human Resilience (CECHR), which is being run collaboratively with community and development sector partners, will be structured around presentations, small group and plenary discussion. The event will bring together expertise from across the UK and abroad.
