Gross National Happiness: Hope, Heartache and Inspirations for making it our own

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop ignites a conversation about Gross National Happiness (GNH) that goes beyond fantasy and idealization to invite personal and practical steps to shaping our own future. Gross National Happiness, a term coined by the Fourth King of Bhutan, is a concept that implies that sustainable development should take a holistic approach toward notions of progress and give equal importance to non-economic aspects of well-being. Based on recent experience living in Bhutan, Anne Z. Parker and colleagues will share realistic reflections about GNH. This practical and interactive workshop explores what we can learn from this perspective on restoring eco-social solutions.
