“We need to restore people’s interconnectedness through reviving our sense of being part of a community”, concluded a small but enthusiastic group of nearly 20 Ambassadors for Peace and UPF associates who convened at the Peace Embassy, Thornton Heath, on 17 March to explore the topic of Wellbeing and Sustainability. Introducing the theme, Lance Gardiner, as MC for the proceedings, highlighted Prime Minister David Cameron’s directive in November 2010 to the Office of National Statistics to devise measures of wellbeing which would eventually feed back into informing and directing national policy.
