WISE/EIESP: Learning and Well-being: An Agenda for Change Report (2014)


The report "Learning and Well-being: An Agenda for Change" examined how to define, measure and foster learning for well-being in schools and through policies. It analyses the theoretical underpinnings and evidence on effective approaches to supporting learn well-being. Six case studies of positive practices from different regions are presented and some of the common principles that can serve as a framework for innovators working in other contexts are identified. It also develops recommendations to actively promote well-being through international frameworks, national education policies and schools. The study was led by Janet Looney and Marwan Awartani.
