HBSC Online Consultation: Measuring child well-being 19th June to 2nd July

The Health Behaviour and School-aged Children (HBSC) study is pleased to be working with the World Health Organisation Regional Office for Europe and Wikichild to sponsor an online discussion entitled: How should child well-being be measured in view of future development frameworks?

This public consultation aims to spark discussion on the most effective means of measuring child well-being and how these measures should be applied to upcoming development frameworks. This discussion seeks to explore a variety of questions including:

  • what is the actual state of child well-being today?
  • What are the most important domains of well-being – specifically for children?
  • What policies have had the most impact on children in the past?
  • Should there be a child development goal in the Post 2015 framework?

We will launch this online discussion at the 30th Anniversary meeting in St Andrews on the 19th of June. This discussion will be active until the 2nd of July, 2013. We strongly encourage you to participate in this online discussion and share your views about this pressing issue. To join this online discussion, and browse the list of recommended resources, simply visit the online discussion between the dates listed above.
