Calls to go “beyond GDP” have prompted many countries to put people’s well-being, inclusiveness, and sustainability at the centre of public policy. In particular, Asia, South-East Asia and Korea have achieved remarkable economic progress over the last half a century. Despite these achievements, key challenges, including demographic changes, inequalities in social development and opportunities, and environmental degradation, remain. The OECD WISE Centre and Statistics Korea are organising jointly this conference in order to share the OECD’s works on complementing macroeonomic indicators like GDP with the OECD Well-Being Framework and country experience in measuring well-being. The Conference will offer an opportunity to discuss multidimensional approaches to measuring the outcomes that matter to people, focusing on the Asian context and also address the highly interconnected challenges that the Asian countries are facing.

Good mental health is a vital part of people’s well-being. Our new report uses the OECD Well-being Framework to systematically review how people’s economic, social, relational, civic and environmental experiences shape and are, in turn, shaped by their mental health. During the event, key findings from the report will be presented followed by a panel discussion with experts from countries that aim to develop integrated policy approaches to simultaneously promote better well-being and mental health outcomes.

OECD World Forums on Well-being
For close to two decades, the OECD World Forums on Well-being, also known as the World Forums on "Statistics, Knowledge and Policy" have been pushing forward the boundaries of well-being measurement and policy. By bringing together thousands of leaders, experts and practitioners from around the world, and from all sectors of society, the Forums have helped to shape the ongoing paradigm shift to emphasise people’s well-being as the ultimate focus for policies and collective action. The next Forum will be taking place in Europe in 2024, stay tuned for more information coming soon!
