About the Partnership
Gallup and the Wellbeing for Planet Earth (WPE) Foundation have joined forces to establish a more inclusive and global understanding of wellbeing by incorporating cross-cultural perspectives into the science of wellbeing with the goal of significantly advancing our knowledge of this important topic.
We will include concepts related to wellbeing such as the role of culture, community, governance and nature to build upon the science of wellbeing, which has traditionally been Western-centric. By offering these additions, the partnership hopes to complement the work of the World Happiness Report and offer additional global data, reporting and thought leadership in the years to come.
The Gallup-WPE partnership is committed to advancing cross-cultural wellbeing research, creating a new set of globally accepted metrics and inspiring local action and public policy changes in service of societies, families and workplaces around the world.
The Wellbeing for Planet Earth World Poll survey will begin gathering data in 2020 with plans for a global launch and dissemination of key findings in 2021.
