Event description

Description

Join us for an entertaining and insightful evening as bestselling author Helen Russell takes us on a trip around the world to discover the secrets of happiness from 30 countries.

From Australia to Wales, via Bhutan, Ireland, Finland, Turkey, Syria, Japan and many more, Helen will share the insights from her new book The Atlas of Happiness, uncovering lots of fascinating habits, attitudes and actions and how we can use them to improve our lives.

Anxious? Take Icelandic inspiration and get some petta reddast. Lost your way in life? Make like the Chinese and find your xing fu. Too much on your plate? Learn the Italian art of dolce far niente. Overwhelmed by busyness and disconnected from nature? Let Helen help you find your smultronstalle, your perfect escape from the rest of the world.

Helen will share her research and the story of how the book came about; why this matters; and how it's necessary, now more than ever, to help us all move forward as global citizens.
