Measurement tracks success, but can also catalyse action. Maroondah City Council (MCC) in Melbourne’s outer suburbs has redesigned its services for 22,000 young people around a simple mission - ‘to raise the wellbeing of Maroondah’s young people’. Founded upon a comprehensive youth consultation and wellbeing measurement project as part of its youth strategy, MCC’s vision for young people is that they are ‘flourishing as part of a healthy and thriving community’. The findings uncovered by the University of Melbourne’s measurement tool - the Wellbeing Profiler, laid the foundation for MCC’s new youth strategy and seeded a cross-sector wellbeing partnership with 27 schools. Maroondah is now embarking on a community-wide implementation of positive education, and MCC has redeveloped its youth programs, policies and services to place wellbeing at the core. The youth strategy has catalysed a shift towards a whole of community approach to wellbeing in young people, and sits alongside an even more ambitious project to build an entire ‘community of wellbeing’ across 117,000 residents. Adam Cooper - the Team Leader of Youth and Children’s Services, will talk about the journey to mobilise a whole community around building wellbeing in children, young people and the whole population of Maroondah.
