Call to Action: Web-COSI – Statistics For Everyone!

The two-year Web-COSI project has officially come to a close, but the initiative does not stop there! Now is the time to get involved by updating your initiatives, data and statistics to the Web-COSI data portal. The Web-COSI data portal (hosted on wikiprogress platform) is an open knowledge base of well-being and sustainability projects from around the world. We call on everyone to register their organisation and add any initiatives, data and reports that you would like to share in order to make this medium the go-to place for data and statistics across the Internet. To do so, visit:

We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to and followed the Web-COSI project over the two years. On the Web-COSI website there are plenty of valuable resources; reports, deliverables, policy briefs, presentations, photos, videos and much more. The Web-COSI website will be maintained and updated over the coming years, so please stay in the loop for those updates, which include another policy brief and more deliverable reports. The Web-COSI website is designed in a way that you should find what you are looking for in three clicks or less:

The Web-COSI project ended with the Final Conference – Beyond GDP, Statistics for Everyone in Paris on 3rd December 2015. We hope all those that were in attendance (both at the OECD and online) will agree that it was a fitting end to a brilliant project. Below you will find media relating to last week’s event, including our short-film (which was launched at the conference).
