Source: Council of the European Union (Council) i, published on Thursday, October 24 2019.

The Council today adopted conclusions on the Economy of Wellbeing inviting the member states and the Commission to include an economy of wellbeing perspective horizontally in national and Union policies and to put people and their wellbeing at the centre of policy design.

The concept of the Economy of Wellbeing is a priority for the Finnish presidency. Its core claim is that while people’s wellbeing is a value in itself, it is also vitally important for the Union’s economic growth, productivity, long-term fiscal sustainability and societal stability.
