Event Details

Do you feel you are thriving, or merely surviving? We are living in an age where healthcare is advanced and our life expectancy is higher than it has ever been, at least in the western world. However, living for longer with access to effective medical treatment does not in itself make for a joyful, meaningful life. Regardless of our age or occupation, we all need to find a purpose and to combat the common problems, such as stress or loneliness, which threaten our ability to enjoy each day.

Following on from the two previous groundbreaking Thrive 2020 events, the Dandelion Foundation is proud to present the third instalment: Thrive 2020, From Surviving to Thriving.

This event is designed to impact upon every member of the community in some way. It will take place on Friday 13 October at Les Cotils, from 9am-5pm, and will cover a full spectrum of thinking and solutions to coincide with the new Guernsey Mental Health and Wellbeing strategy launched earlier this year. It also forms a bold vision that is in line with the Future Guernsey plan to make Guernsey one of the happiest and healthiest countries in the world.

Whilst the programme is still being finalised, the speakers we have already confirmed are at the cutting edge of what they do. All of these inspiring speakers will have valuable lessons to share, which we can take on board and apply to our island. The programme includes:

  • Dan Acher of Happy City Lab, which explores collective spaces to create situations and events that encourage participative experiences.

  • Graham Marshall on urban design - how our built environment affects our mental health.

  • Alex Heaton on behavioural change and education programmes for the Department for Education, Business and the NHS.

  • Elaine Wyllie on the Daily Mile and how this initiative has helped children to perform better at school.

  • Wendy Suzuki explores the impact of exercise on brain function.

  • Dr Melrose Stewart, who appeared in the Channel 4 programme ‘Old People’s Home for Four Year Olds’, on achieving equity in health and social care.

  • Kevin Edward Turner of Company Chameleon, an ‘ordinary lad’ from Manchester who has introduced thousands of young people around the world to a different side of dance and movement.

  • Dr Pratima Singh on functional medicine for the NHS.

  • Rachel Kelly, who will be talking about her new book on eating for good mental health.

  • Mark Hopfenbeck on Open Dialogue, a new work of working with those suffering from psychosis.

The latest speaker lineup and full event details of the event can be found at

This conference is open to and suitable for all and will be fully livestreamed for those that can't make it on the day. 

This event is a not-for-profit event and is fully catered.

The Dandelion Foundation

The underlying motivation behind The Dandelion Foundation is to bring the community together to help create a better place for us all to live.

Every islander already has the potential to offer our community something to help our community to move forward in some way. The Dandelion Foundation aims to release that potential.

The world is changing every day. Making a big difference at our community level no longer requires the resources that only government is capable of delivering. The capability of small groups of people to make a real difference is already here and that provides us with a fantastic opportunity.

There has never been a better time for a community like Guernsey to unite to inspire bold action. Guernsey is both a town and a country. It is the perfect societal model to come together to try out new ideas for the benefit of the local population.

It is early days in terms of the project. At the moment it is very much about the bringing together of a large group of islanders that believe that we are capable of something more.
