How Do We Evaluate?

This is not an easy task to accomplish! Both sustainability as well as wellbeing are complex concepts and may have several interpretations. What we are looking for is those projects and properties that have already made successful attempts of combining these two. The 99 Lighthouses is not an ‘official’ list and there is no first or second. More importantly there are great and inspiring examples, initiatives and lessons learned that can be meaningful and applicable to others.

The founders and partners of HTWWLife represent wide range of expertise. We have been involved in sustainable development and planning, wellbeing mapping and engineering as well as destination management or stewardship projects just to name the most important ones.

We are  interested in learning about the ethos behind the development or project and we want to learn about the sustainability and wellbeing-oriented DNA. The process is really simple: there are only a few questions the applicant may need to fill in. All you need to do is to provide evidence of the paralel application of the two concepts.

Every project or destination is expected to fill in a Recommendation Form that looks at the following main four factors:

  1. UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG17) – Which of the 17 goals have taken the project into account and how does it apply inspirational solutions?
  2. Wellbeing Domains – Which of the 7 wellbeing domains has been considered and how is the project’s or destination’s wellbeing DNA defined?
  3. Focus Area – Which area(s) represent(s) the core of the wellbeing direction from generic wellness to healing?
  4. Project or Destination Type – What kind of project or destination is it in question?

Every applicant is expected to provide evidence, i.e. descriptions, images, awards, etc. that can support their lighthouse approach.

We work together with carefully selected partners and experts who can help us in identifying the most suitable examples. We are priviledged to have been working together with the following prestigious organisations:
