There are all kinds of ways that we measure "success" in our cities—but often, well-being levels aren't one of them. The Community Social Planning Council of Greater Victoria is launching their Social Well-Being Tracker to address these gaps in our collective understanding with a different indicator every 6 weeks. Indicator #1 is Poverty and Inequality.

At this launch event, you'll hear guest speakers discuss how to build cities for well-being and happiness through a poverty and equity lens, and what this means for the Greater Victoria region and beyond. A short AGM for the Council will follow the event proceedings.

About the Social Well-Being Tracker

This is a web interface for tracking social trends across the region, updated in real time as new data becomes available. As new data gets entered, infographics, blogs and opinion pieces will be produced to engage the public and media around the trends and their implications. Our team will also be engaging regularly with municipal governments and other policymakers to support evidence based planning and social wellbeing accountability.
