The Goldfields communities are strong communities.
Resilient, progressive, creative, diverse, inclusive. Proud.
Let’s make the Central Victorian Goldfields region the best it can be!
A happy community is a thriving community. As part of the wider COVID recovery, governments are investing to build stronger communities. Measuring individual and community happiness allows us to understand what factors contribute to our well-being and helps us focus investment to improve our quality of life.
You can help make your Goldfields community the best it can be by taking the Happiness Index Survey. Why not measure your happiness and find out how you compare to others? The survey kicked off on the International Day of Happiness on 20 March 2021.
How is your quality of life?
For you and your community!
Your privacy is assured. Your response is anonymous, used only for the purpose outlined here and only used in overall score cards, aggregated with other people’s responses. Your response will not be sold and is only kept as long as useful. (In line with the strongest privacy code, the European Union’s Protection of Personal Data Directive 2016/679).
Can we measure happiness? Yes, by assessing multiple domains of well-being.
How is it used? Aggregated scores from the Happiness Index are shared back with communities so that everyone can have a say in what they want to happen for their happiness and well-being and with government and the tourism sector to identify how best to strengthen links between tourism development and the quality of life of host communities.
As we face a global crisis together, let’s find positive ways to look after ourselves and each other, starting with these three positive steps…
Keep Calm. Stay Wise. Be Kind.
