To compliment the research we carried out in the rest of the project, we ran a knowledge brokerage workshop in Venice in October 2013. The workshop brought together over forty indicator experts, economists, statisticians, government officials, trade union representatives and policy makers, who were encouraged to put forward and discuss their impressions regarding the key barriers facing the uptake of Beyond GDP indicators. The representatives put together an action plan, with specific goals for the following months.
You can read a blog about the event on the OECD ProgBlog.
