Measuring wellbeing for effective placemaking


The Centre for Environmental Change and Human Resilience (CECHR) and the Geddes Institute for Urban Research held a symposium in November 2015 in Dundee aiming to address the following questions.

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

A paper outlining the discussions and conclusions from this seminar has now been published.
