There is an idea about having a minister for wellbeing.
The goal of the minister for wellbeing would be to help increase the wellbeing and happiness of all Australians. This may be feasible if a suitable measure of wellbeing and happiness is developed.
Examples of groups working toward a wellbeing and happiness measure include:
- The Global Project on “Measuring the Progress of Societies”
- Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress
- ABS: Measures of Australia’s Progress
An example of a resource that can help along these lines is the Making Australia Happy website run by the ABC.
