The surprising list of countries that are proving the pessimists wrong
David Bank

I had not heard of the Social Progress Index, so thank you for the introduction. It will certainly be something I will consider when making leisure and focused research.
My only question, of course, then becomes– how can we actively promote and increase the progress either locally or abroad in our daily lives? I ask this only from reading your article, I will seek their website and other associates to find this answer myself as well. 
But I am interested in what you have found (as you wrote the article) and see to be the most effective. 
Also, big picture– how are countries involving themselves in this progress? Specifically in relation to the statistics of the Social Progress Index and it’s standards.
