Global Wellbeing Indicators
Designers and people in general are too attracted by ‘new’, but nothing ages more quickly than ‘newness’. All my objects reflect [a] marriage between past and present.
The GWI is a holistic measure of national wellbeing developed by the Barrett Academy based on the Barrett Model.
Two, three or four indicators are allocated to each level of consciousness to obtain a GWI score for each level and an overall GWI score for the nation. The indicator scores are normalized and an average score is taken for each level (out of 100). The scores for each level are added to obtain the GWI score for a nation (out of 700).
The allocation of the 17 indicators to the Seven Levels of Consciousness are shown in the following diagram.
