World Happiness Report 2015


Friday, April 24, 2015 – 7:00pm
New York Society For Ethical Culture 2 West 64th Street

What are the sources of happiness? How can we foster happiness in our societies? What is the state of global happiness today? The World Happiness Report 2015 answers the questions. For the first time ever, the three co-editors of the World Happiness Report – Professors Jeffrey D. Sachs, Richard Layard, and John Helliwell – will do a public event to discuss the Report’s findings and future directions.

The third World Happiness Report will build on the first two ground-breaking reports, first published in 2012. It delves even more deeply into what makes people happy, the state of happiness around the world today, and advice for policy makers. The Report has the most updated global rankings of happiest countries, and finds that the key components to a happy life are income, healthy life expectancy, freedom to make life choices, perceptions of corruption, social support, and generosity. The Report includes chapters written by world-leading experts on specific aspects of happiness and well-being, including the neuroscience of happiness, subjective wellbeing of children, and a cost-benefit analysis of policies promoting happiness.<a
