Evidence and well-being

Monday 31st of March 2014
Nesta, 1 Plough Place, London, EC4A 1DE 11:00am - 4:00pm

This interactive and participatory conference explored the creation of a What Works Centre for Well-being. This event explored how this Centre could be most useful for decision-makers and frontline practitioners. The morning featured experts in this field and the afternoon consisted of breakout groups to examine how the Centre could work in practice, drawing on the expertise of the delegates.

 

After the event we ask potential users of the Centre to explain how it could help their work. You can read the resulting blog series here.
