Mari Kiviniemi delivers one of the keynote addresses “What Matters To Well-Being: The Benefits Of A Life Course Approach” at the conference “Subjective well-being over the life course: Evidence and policy implications” held at the London School of Economics and Political Science on 12-13 December 2016.
The conference was organised by OECD, CEPREMAP, What Works Centre for Wellbeing , and the CEP.
Mari Kiviniemi is Deputy Secretary-General at the OECD. She is responsible for the strategic oversight of the OECD’s work on Efficient and Effective Governance; Territorial Development; Trade and Agriculture, as well as Statistics. She is also responsible for advancing the Better Life Initiative.
Why should governments care about people’s wellbeing? How would policy change if raising wellbeing was the objective?
Supported by the What Works Centre for Wellbeing, this event was a landmark conference reporting the first results from a collaboration between the London School of Economics Centre for Economic Performance, the CEPREMAP Wellbeing Observatory at the Paris School of Economics, the OECD, and an international consortium of researchers.
