Very much agree. Our #vibranteconomyindex takes into account the different elements required to make an economy vibrant. 

The Index underscores the fact that vibrancy is multi-dimensional: places are vibrant in different ways. So while the Index creates an overall rank there will be differences and variations across the different aspects of vibrancy. The Index shows that:

·       Creating vibrant societies isn't simple and policies to increase growth don’t necessarily translate into societies that are healthy, inclusive or feel they are making progress

·       Progress is personal and local, as well as national, but that place-shaping will be best managed by localities themselves determining what is important to them

·       Responsibility doesn't rest solely with the public sector, but needs to be a collaboration with not for profit and business communities – where a vision for growth is more sustainable and widely shared.
