We are advancing an understanding of well-being that draws from a broad range of scientific research and applications, and aligns around a proposed set of foundational pre-conditions that allow individuals, families and communities to flourish. These factors include:
Upon this foundation, we propose that well being also depends upon:
Accessible, Reliable Transportation
Supportive Relationships and Social Capital
Respect and Tolerance for Culture and Diversity
The resulting framework is intended to serve as an introductory foundation for exploring a meaningful, locally informed and data driven understanding of well being in Hawaii. The framework allows us to build a set of specific measures or indicators of well being, across a broad range of relevant domains, that helps us tell the story of the strengths and challenges faced by communities across the state.
Do you have thoughts or feedback you’d like to share regarding Our Framework? We’d love to hear from you.
