EC rises its concern about subjective wellbeing – a great opportunity for WellCo
Promoting the well-being of its citizens is a key goal for the EU and has gained prominence in the social policy agenda in the last years.
Because of this, several European Frameworks for Action on Mental Health and Well-being aimed at improving policy efficiency and effectiveness in EU member states have arisen in the past years. These actions have been encouraged by tools such as the European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS), that has a uniquely large set of indicators of subjective well-being (26 indicators in the 2016 survey)
This common concern about subjective wellbeing lays the foundation for the success in the market of WellCo project, that provides a “coach” for personalised advice, guidance and follow-up for key age related issues in daily life which impact the person’s wellbeing, for example diet, physical activity, risk avoidance, preventive measures, lifestyle and activity management, leisure, social participation and overall wellness.
WellCo project will follow actions and indicators in this topic in order to deliver a solution that leverage current tools and validated scales to properly cover concerns in this area.
