SDSN and the Happier Way Foundation are excited to continue the conversation on happiness and well-being. Over the next few months we will be hosting three webinars to dive deeper into the chapters of the World Happiness Report (WHR). The chapter authors will give a presentation of their chapter and then the floor will open up for an interactive conversation between authors and participants. We invite you to join us for the following events:

Insights From the First Global Survey of Balance and Harmony
Jul 12, 2022 11:00 AM EDT
Balance & harmony have been particularly associated with Eastern cultures, historically and currently. But does that mean they are overlooked or undervalued in the rest of the world?
Tim Lomas, Psychology Research Scientist, from the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health & Human Flourishing Program at Harvard University will join us in discussion of insights from the first global survey of balance and harmony. Several new questions were added to the Gallup World Poll in 2020 to measure balance and harmony. We will discuss concepts of balance and harmony typically associated with Eastern culture.
