Event description

Description


HAPPINESS AND WELLBEING

The aim of this one-day conference is to explore the theme of Happiness and Wellbeing from religious, philosophical, psychological, health and other perspectives. The conference also intends to facilitate interreligious and interdisciplinary engagement as well as research in this area. In recent years the theme of Happiness and Wellbeing has gained enormous attention in various fields such as psychology, social science, economics, education, health care, and is slowly gaining ground in philosophical and religious discourses. There are multiple definitions of happiness and wellbeing and they have been understood in the broadest as well as in the narrowest sense. This topic will be discussed from a variety of perspectives and the conference attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the speakers before and during the Panel Discussion.
