|Description:||Annual Conference of the International Society for Quality-of-Life Studies|
|Location:||Florence, Istituto degli Innocenti, Italy|
|Subject:||At the IX ISQOLS Conference in Florence, Quality of Life Studies will be seen in terms of Measures and Goals for the Progress of Societies. In this perspective, we would like that the following key questions could guide the discussion and find an answer at the conference. 1. Can we measure progress without identifying some goal or target toward which we are aiming? 2. How can we measure progress in terms of community and environmental well-being, instead of economic growth? 3. What models can be used to help integrate the ideas, aims, energy and work of technical and non-technical people in the pursuit of progress? 4. What models can be used to help integrate the work of large and small local communities with provinces/states, regions and countries? 5. How can the wealthiest countries and citizens be most helpful to less wealthy countries and citizens? [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
