Los Angeles Well-Being Project
The Los Angeles Well-being Project is a collaborative campaign aimed at building the momentum and advancing a shift toward resilience, healthy, and equitable mobility for all. Expanding on the "Happiness & Well-Being Index" in Los Angeles from 2014, HappyCity Los Angeles will bring together local leaders in government, civil society organizations, media, businesses, and economists to develop strategies for distributed leadership for policies and practices that make Vision 80 a reality.

Please explain how you will evaluate your work.
The Los Angeles Wellbeing Project’s Vision 80 will be evaluated based on a single index ranging from 0 to 100 with the goal to exceed 80 based on the data collected from respondents from the Gross National Happiness Index surveys. An example of the output that this methodology can provide can be seen at the website: http://www.happycity.us/los-angeles.html
In order to work in conjunction with the goals set forth by LA 2050, our “Los Angeles Wellbeing Project’s Vision 80” will aim to target meeting those goals by 2050.
