Valuing Wellbeing: Are We Doing it Right?

Our next SVUK Thought Leadership Group on the Social Value of the Design and Use of Buildings and Places will be looking at and discussing the role of Wellbeing measurement in social value calculations. How do we effectively measure quantitatively such a subjective experience?

Date: 25th July

Time: 10.30am-12.00 midday

Venue: Online Video Webinar

Topic: Valuing Wellbeing: Are We Doing it Right? 

Wellbeing, the term used to describe how people feel about their lives, frequently forms part of a comprehensive social value prediction or evaluation. There is now plenty of encouragement for social value reporters to include wellbeing in their assessments. Public sector guidance including the Green Book and the OECD’s work on measuring wellbeing both emphasise that it is necessary to consider the way people respond to interventions, or risk an inaccurate understanding of the impacts under consideration.

This Thought Leadership Group is convened by RealWorth in partnership with Envoy Partnership and Commonplace. The event will discuss the latest thinking about how to accurately report the value of wellbeing generated by stakeholders, and will invite debate, questions, and the sharing of best practice in the field. To support this discussion we are distributing a short survey that examines the current approaches and opinions of practitioners to wellbeing measurements.

  • Start 10:30 am

  • Session ends 12.00 midday
