GDP is still used as the main measurement for economic well-being, despite the criticism it has received over the last few years. Recent research has underlined that using  DP as a guideline for policy is especially misleading in the field of climate change. Problems are handed on to future generations while GDP still grows. This side event, organised by the European Economic and Social Committee, will present new approaches on how indicators could measure the real prosperity of our societies more appropriately. The EEA’s Executive Director, Professor Jacqueline McGlade, will present the work currently being undertaken by the EEA on accounting.
Organisers: European Economic and Social Committee, Sustainable Development Observatory
