Flourishing Environments Breakout Session (Choose 1)

Environments Encouraging Flourishing - Moderated by Megan Carolan, ICS, Director of Policy Research
What environments currently encourage flourishing? What are the components of an environment that encourages flourishing?  This session will explore existing and aspirational environments that can encourage flourishing. 

Measurement in Action:  Leveraging Existing Resources and Tailoring Measurement for Transformation - Moderated by Christina Bethell, MD
Flourishing is a concept that has been difficult to measure. If there are people who are measuring it, how are they doing so?  How do we operationally define “flourishing?”  This session will explore current measures that may operationalize flourishing, as well as how we might measure it and define it best.

Creating Solutions - Moderated by Bryan Boroughs, ICS, Vice President and General Council
What are solutions to current obstacles that we face in creating environments in which children and families can flourish?  Are there policy solutions?  Are other states or countries addressing these issues in a better way?  This session will explore current solutions to barriers to environments in which children and families can flourish.
