If you’re in or around @SanJose and want to hear more about GNH:

The Pursuit of
Gross National Happiness:
Bhutan and a Vision for a Better World
Friday, July 15, 2011 @ 7:00 pm
San José Peace and Justice Center
48 South 7th Street
San José, CA 95112
The term GNH was coined in 1972 by the King of Bhutan to provide a far different measure of
human success than GNP. This talk will provide a photo slideshow of the Himalayan nation, a
presentation and critique of Bhutan’s GNH indicators of success, and a vision for a better world.
Richard Hobbs is the Executive Director of Human Agenda, a human rights
organization in San José that works to envision and embody the world we would like
to see. In January Richard made a presentation on the vision of Human Agenda to
the Gross National Happiness Commission of Bhutan in Thimphu. Richard is an
immigration attorney, activist, and former community college trustee, and former
director of the Office of Human Relations of Santa Clara County.
All welcome. Donation $5 – $10
