2011 Update Report
CIW International Advisory Network
This year was a pivotal one for the CIW. The project moved to the University of Waterloo
(uWaterloo) in January, with very little ramp up time following the release of the final of the eight domain report on the Environment in April, and then the release of the first full composite index, a mere six months later in October. The high profile release of the Composite Index provided much media attention and global reach, and in many ways, solidified our existence at Waterloo and our role as leaders in alternate measures of wellbeing at the OECD. By year end, the CIW was embedded in the culture of the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences (AHS); in fact, their Christmas card to alumni, funders, and other partners mentioned “wellbeing” on the front cover.
