Proceedings - Hangzhou International Congress

Culture, Poverty and Well-Being

Stemming from the Stiglitz-Sen-Fitoussi Report on rethinking GDP and the Rio+20 request to the United Nations system to address the measurement of progress beyond GDP, can well-being be defined and achieved regardless of individual and collective aspirations, identities, rootedness, creativity, freedom of expression, the free-flow and exchange of ideas, diversity, access to culture and knowledge, and participation? How can the cultural dimensions of well-being be integrated into measuring progress beyond GDP?

Keynote address 1A: Cultural approaches to addressing poverty
