In this final week we will consolidate what we have learned and address the big question of whether well-being approaches make significant differences to outcomes, policies, and plans. We’ll explore the ways in which organisations can develop learning strategies that are more clearly focused on life as a whole, rather than just changes in resources on specific aspects of people’s lives. Emphasising the importance of collaborative inter-agency learning, we look at how well-being changes learning strategies at local, national, and international levels.
