My friend the wise guru of time management/work-life balance John DeGraaf is putting together this important conference. It’s in Seattle later this summer. Lots of poobahs in the happiness movement will be there…. Here are the details.
HAPPINESS, COMPASSION AND SUSTAINABILITY
—A STRATEGIC GATHERING
With keynote speaker Eric Weiner of NPR, author of
THE GEOGRAPHY OF BLISS
Join activists and experts in a broad-ranging conversation about an old ideal, the pursuit of happiness!
In July, 2011, the United Nations urged all member nations to make “the pursuit of happiness” the goal of their governments and find ways to measure their success. We are meeting in Seattle to plan strategy for putting the UN’s call into action.
