Wellbeing Economy: Community Survey


Wellbeing Economy: community survey

We want to find out what matters to you. The Wellbeing Economy Alliance Scotland is partnering with Cairngorms National Park Authority to design the foundations of what a wellbeing economy might look for communities, businesses and visitors in the park.

A wellbeing economy is one that’s centred around the needs of nature and communities. This project is part of Heritage Horizons: Cairngorms 2030 which is empowering people who live, visit and work in the national park to tackle the climate and nature crises.

What does wellbeing mean to you? We want to explore what matters for personal, collective and future wellbeing, and how we can measure it.

Together we want to create a small set of ‘Cornerstone Indicators’. Cornerstone Indicators are simple indicators used to measure progress on those aspects of collective wellbeing most important to the community.

This is part of the Heritage Horizons Wellbeing Economy project; developing a wellbeing economy action plan that delivers social justice in a healthy ecosystem, drawing on the special natural and cultural qualities of the Cairngorms.

Cornerstone Indicators Survey

Wellbeing is about our quality of life as individuals, communities and society, and how sustainable that will be in the future. It includes our personal and collective wellbeing as well as the wellbeing of nature, animals and our environment.

By engaging with communities we can learn what matters for personal, collective and future wellbeing to help form the basis for an economy that delivers this wellbeing, and co-create ways to measure progress.  

This survey consists of two parts. The first part (Questions 1 - 5) asks you to identify what wellbeing means to you. The second part (Questions 6-9) is about collective wellbeing, looking to the future (longer term) and asks how we can measure wellbeing for individuals and for communities.  

Wellbeing: noun: wellbeing

the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy.

Thriving; Flourishing; Secure; Relaxed; Contented; …

5. We believe a Wellbeing Economy satisfies five universal human needs for a good life.

Can you score how much the following statements apply to you on a scale of 1 – 5 (1 is low and 5 is high)?
