Title: Toward Common Ground: Snapshot of Social & Health Wellbeing
Author: Haanstra, Sarah
Abstract: Recognizing that there may be missed opportunities to communicate, coordinate or work together for a common purpose, Toward Common Ground was created as a first step to strengthen the City of Guelph and the County of Wellington’s ability to work together for more enhanced and meaningful impact. Over the course of this project, student researchers at the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute undertook research that was used to support the identification of appropriate indicators and measures of adult wellbeing. Other University of Guelph partnerships were also developed through which students took on projects as part of their course work. The TCG partnership has now created a common language framework to understand the social and health wellbeing of adults in the City of Guelph and County of Wellington. Local data highlights provide a snapshot of wellbeing trends in Guelph and Wellington under the following five domains of wellbeing: Health, Safety, Economic and Household Resources, Education and Belonging and Participation. Concepts, indicators and measures have been identified for each domain and will be presented alongside information about why each domain and/or concept is important to overall wellbeing.
