This All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Wellbeing Economics is an officially recognised cross-party group of MPs and Lords in the UK Parliament.
Formed in March 2009, it exists to:
– Provide a forum for discussion of wellbeing issues and public policy in Parliament;
– Promote enhancement of wellbeing as an important government goal;
– Encourage the adoption of wellbeing indicators as complimentary measures of progress to GDP;
– Promote policies designed to enhance wellbeing.
To forward the group’s agenda, its members have tabled Early Day Motions about wellbeing; tabled questions to, and held debates with, Government Ministers; and held a number of successful speaker meetings with leading policy makers, academics, think tanks and NGOs.
The What Works Centre for Wellbeing provides the Secretariat for the group.
