New research briefings on transdisciplinary research and community wellbeing metrics

Published: Posted on

Today the Centre for Urban Wellbeing publishes its first research briefings aimed at providing key information, ideas and examples to inspire researchers, policy makers and community organisations to take a place-based approach to research and action on urban wellbeing.

While research on subjective wellbeing has boomed, the complex relationship between people’s wellbeing and place is deserving of more attention. Local and regional policy makers are often committed to improving wellbeing in place but stronger collaborative working across the realms of economic development, public health and sustainability could support a more strategic agenda for urban wellbeing. We hope that these resources can help decision-makers to shape that agenda.

Transdisciplinary Research Approach

This briefing explains the urgent need for translating wellbeing research into action to address urban and regional inequalities. It sets out cases where transdisciplinary approaches have been used effectively to advance community wellbeing.

Community Wellbeing Metrics

This briefing introduces the idea of community wellbeing, and sets out cases where tools for measuring and evaluating community wellbeing have been used effectively. It highlights some key principles for translating wellbeing research into action to address urban and regional inequalities.
