What do we mean by 'happiness' and what really makes us happy?

As CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, and the author of the huge bestseller Little Book of Hygge, he consults cities, governments and organisations on happiness. His job is to travel around the world, seeking out the happiest people and uncovering what they do differently. From how we spend our precious time, to how we relate to our neighbours, he gathers evidence, stories and tips from the very happiest corners of the planet.

In this exclusive event, he reveals what he has found, and how we can learn from it. Meik will also be discussing his new book The Art of Making Memories... "Happy memories are essential to our mental health. They strengthen our identity, sense of purpose and relationships. Meik's new book will teach you how to create and remember happy moments and will change how you think about happy memories." Dr Rangan Chatterjee
