From March 18th – 23rd, World Happiness Week will focus our energy on recovery, accelerating the global movement for well-being via the most accessible event on the planet.
The six day digital summit will unite “leading happiness and well-being experts across 80 cities,” according to World Happiness Foundation founder Luis Gallardo. “This year we are going to explore suffering and flourishing at World Happiness Week,” says Gallardo. “It is neither necessary nor desirable to eliminate human struggles and frailties to pursue a flourishing human life. Creating a proper attitude and response to our limitations, challenges, and suffering is the best way to a flourishing life.”
The Foundation feels that Covid-19 has transformed the lives and values of many people in the world. “And for an increasing number of us, well-being and happiness have become the new paradigm for human progress.”
The summit will feature seminars, talks, networking events, performances, and experiential workshops presented by happiness experts from every continent and 80 cities, including the active participation of 70 global local group chapters.
Keynote speakers include Bhutan’s “happiness guru” Saamdu Chetri, author and educator Tal Ben Shahar, creator of Harvard’s wildly popular Happiness program. Myron Belfer, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, and neuroscientist Dr. James Doty of Stanford University’s Center for Compassion & Altruism Research & Education (co-founded by The Dalai Lama).
