With a resurgence from governments to put a green transition at the core of the COVID-19 recovery, it is vital that future policies are both green and people centred.

OECD World Forums on “Statistics, Knowledge and Policy”
For close to two decades, the OECD 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.
