The Social Progress Imperative and the City of Reykjavik announced
today that the capital of Iceland will be the first city in Europe to
use the Social Progress Index to map and improve the well-being of all
A memorandum of understanding was signed at today's
conclusion of the "Social Progress-What Works?" event. “Iceland is already a leading country in the world on social
progress, and we’re used to thinking that life is pretty good in
Reykjavik,” said Dagur Eggertsson, Mayor of Reykjavik.
“This new effort
to map what is and is not working for people in different parts of our
city will allow us to make sure that there is a chance for all residents
to enjoy social progress. This initiative should also give renewed
confidence that government exists to improve the lives of residents.”
