ANDI

Info

Client: ANDI

Produced: 2012

Length: 5.04 minutes

How should we measure wellbeing as individuals, as communities, and as a nation? The ANDI initiative urges us to start talking about the true meaning of progress.

In this short film, five high-profile Australians argue that our nation’s tendency to rely on economic indicators as default measures of success means we fail to take into account issues like sustainability, justice, happiness, health and equality, which are also important in defining our nation’s progress. The Australian National Development Index (ANDI) project is a civil society initiative which aims to create a better measure of progress. To promote ANDI, and to prompt financial support, we interviewed Tim Costello, Samah Hadid, Simon McKeon, Fiona Stanley and Don Henry. Each interviewee speaks persuasively from their own perspective, and they send out a call to action for partners to get behind ANDI in whatever way they can.
