Support to the European Commission on it's Beyond GDP Initiative: Analysis and Communication
The Beyond GDP website of the European commission provides infomation on a range of global initiatives to measure societal and economic progress. In cooperation with IEEP the Ecologic institute develops Newsletters for the website and provides web developpment support for the European commission.
The Beyond GDP initiative is about developing indicators that are as clear and appealing as GDP, but more inclusive of environmental and social aspects of progress. Economic indicators such as GDP were never designed to be comprehensive measures of prosperity and well-being. We need adequate indicators to address global challenges of the 21st century such as climate change, poverty, resource depletion, health and quality of life.
