Catholic World News - May 28, 2013
The British and Costa Rican embassies to the Holy See, in collaboration with the Pontifical Council for Culture, are hosting a conference on May 28 entitled, “Well-Being of Society: Happiness as a measure of the economy? A cultural perspective.”
Speakers include Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture; diplomats and other government officials of Costa Rica and the United Kingdom; and Saamah Abdallah of the New Economics Foundation, who will discuss the Happy Planet Index, a measure of wellbeing that serves as an alternative to the gross domestic product.
