Event description


The World Happiness Project is working with Bournemouth University to launch the UK’s first National Happiness and Wellbeing conference at Bournemouth University from 17th to 19th April.

The HAPPY People-Places-Planet event is free and takes place over a three day period. It is aimed at professional people working in the Healthcare, Education, Social Care, Public Service and Local Government sectors. There are also a limited number of spaces for local businesses and members of the general public interested in happiness and wellbeing in the community and the workplace.

The idea behind the conference is to showcase examples of actions and interventions that can increase happiness and improve mental health and wellbeing in our local community and in the workplace. It will also highlight why the new BCP region is becoming the happiest place to live in the UK.

A number of internationally recognised speakers will be giving presentations and talks related to Happiness, Mental Health and Wellbeing and there’ll also be a range of experiential activities and practical sessions for people to try out, including beach yoga, meditation, forest bathing, laughter therapy, mindfulness, wildlife and nature tours, etc.
