A Europe that Champions Well-being: Reframing EU priorities for the next five years

A Europe that Champions Well-being: Reframing EU priorities for the next five years

A global paradigm shift is occurring in attitudes towards economic and social progress. From a GDP centred model, a new paradigm now focuses on improving citizen's well-being. All Policies for a Healthy Europe is a multi-stakeholder initiative calling for Europe to be part of that transformation in policy thinking and action.

If you’d like to attend the launch of the All Policies for a Healthy Europe Manifesto to discuss how cross- and inter-sectoral action on health and well-being can be embedded in broader EU strategies for sustainable development and inclusive growth, please get in contact through the link.

Lawmakers, stakeholders see delivering economics of well-being as next health challenge

The well-being of EU citizens should be made a priority and an intersectoral approach integrating policy areas such as housing, fighting pollution and digital transformation into health can also help bring about new economic models, MEPs and civil society representatives agree.
