Community Indicators WorkshopThe Community Indicators workshop held in Melbourne on 5 & 6 September 2006 was aimed at gathering an understanding of the progress measures, indicators and frameworks that have been developed within Australia for the purpose of assessing community wellbeing. While a lot of work has been undertaken in different jurisdictions, to date there had been no forum to enable people working in this area to come together to share ideas, experiences and learnings. The workshop provided this opportunity, together with the chance for participants to learn about developments in other selected countries and the international coordination efforts being undertaken by the OECD.
