Marty Paradine, Town Manager, Valleyview Alberta Speaks about the Valleyview Well-being Initiative

Join my next guest, Marty Paradine, an engineer and the town manager of a small Alberta town called Valleyview (2000 people). Marty was instrumental in envisioning and leading the Well-being Project for the town of Valleyview between 2016-2017. The project resulted in the development of a Well-being Index for the towns citizens and a Well-being Measurement and Governance system, perhaps the first municipality in North America. Marty and I explore the challenges of measuring well-being, incorporating well-being impacts into planning and budgeting, how to demonstrate value for taxes through a well-being lens, and how to orient municipal asset management to improving the well-being of a community.
