Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Happiness Metrics. How do we integrate them?
In the article "Bridging the Gap between the Sustainable Development Goals and Happiness Metrics" (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s42413-018-0012-2), Iriarte and Musikanski (2019) noted that aspects relevant to the measurement of happiness were not included within the SDGs. The authors identified the key indicators for happiness that were not included in the SDG indicators and proposed that these indicators be included within the SDG indicators.

This survey is carried out in order to contrast with the international community the perception about the interactions between the SDG and the happiness metrics and has been designed by El Buen Vivir (www.elbuenvivir.org) with the collaboration of the Happiness Alliance (https://www.happycounts.org/).

The results of this study will be discussed with the community in an online workshop to be held the 27th of August. The final article will be published in a journal and distributed, in an open way, among the international scientific community with the objective of contributing to the efforts that different actors are making in the promotion of sustainable development and happiness. Also, the results will be presented at the 17th Annual Conference of the International Society of Quality-of-Life Studies to be held in Granada (Spain) from the 4th to the 7th of September 2019 (https://www.isqols.org/page-18262).

Fulfilling the survey will take you less than 10 minutes. The results will be anonymous. We are very grateful for your support.
