Wellbeing Report seminar series: The launch of Te Tai Waiora: Wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand by the Secretary to the Treasury Caralee McLiesh

Event series: 


Join Secretary to the Treasury Caralee McLiesh for the launch of Te Tai Waiora, the Treasury’s first wellbeing report under the Public Finance Act. The purpose of the Wellbeing Report is to better understand how well we are doing as a country. What are the things that are most important for our wellbeing and how might we measure them? Are things getting better over time or worse? How do we compare to other developed countries? What does the future look like for the next generation? This is your opportunity to be among the first to hear from Caralee McLiesh about the findings of Te Tai Waiora, join in a conversation around why it matters, and discuss the opportunities for future research and policy analysis.
