Summary

This post visualizes a wellbeing-based system that progresses toward the most good and overviews steps to stabilize it. These steps are: 1) Implement existing risk mitigation strategies among major stakeholders, 2) Understand wellbeing through research and its coordination, 3) Facilitate institutions’ implementation of wellbeing research, 4) Facilitate reflection on institutional objectives, and 5) Increase participation in the global system if this is significantly reduced.
