"Happiness is the meaning and purpose of life" .......................................Aristotle
World Happiness Project
Our vision is to increase happiness and improve mental health and wellbeing at home, in the community and in the workplace.
We aim to create a major new television series and global video stream about what makes people happy around the world and to demonstrate how we can all adopt measures to increase our happiness, strengthen our mental health and improve our wellbeing. Featuring interviews and discussions with international politicians, academic experts and famous celebrities as well as people known for their happy disposition. We answer the question: What makes us happy? and How can we bring more happiness into our lives?
Visualising Happiness is our latest concept that touches upon all aspects of happiness and wellbeing, including philosophy, religious influence, history and importance, as well as introducing practical methods of achieving happiness in our everyday lives based on the Action for Happiness Ten keys to happier living.
Since the beginning of the Coronavirus lockdown in 2020 we have been successfully running a free monthly online Global Happy Cafe via Zoom which features high profile speakers and a discussion about practical ideas on happiness and wellbeing with contributions from our Happiness Ambassadors around the world.
See BBC news item featuring our Global Happy Cafe meeting in March 2021 that celebrated the UN International Day of Happiness and launch of the World Happiness Report on 20th March. Visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvEC0uO8OPU&t=10s

It is aimed at the general public as well as professionals working in the Healthcare, Education, Social Care, Public Service and Local Government sector and people from businesses and industry interested in improving wellbeing in the workplace.
GLOBAL HAPPY CAFÉ - Act locally, think globally!
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown in 2020, we launched a highly successful online Global Happy Café. Meeting once a month via Zoom, we are now reaching out to over 1000 regular subscribers with monthly virtual meetings that bring people together from around the world to share our unique brand of Happy Café meetings. The aim is to develop a fellowship of likeminded people interested in increasing their happiness and improving their mental health and wellbeing, promoting the Action for Happiness Ten Keys to Happier Living, and discussing the future of society following the Corona virus pandemic.
MEDIA BRIEFING FORUM November 18th at 11am
The American Declaration of Independence affirmed the unalienable human right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We believe one of the principal roles of government is to maintain the happiness and wellbeing of its people. In support of this, we are now launching an online Media Briefing Forum calling upon the media to help explain the importance of happiness and wellbeing in society following the global coronavirus pandemic. People need to be reminded what government is for and politicians of all persuasions need to be encouraged to recognise the value of creating a happy society. The Media Briefing Forum will take place on Thursday November 18th starting at 11am. Full details will be announced shortly.
