  • Jessica Amortegui on positive leadership development
  • Kathryn Britton on building confidence in writing
  • Pam Hernandez on self acceptance and well-being among working women
  • Louisa Jewell on building confidence in general
  • Emilia Lahti on sisu
  • Sandy Lewis and Michelle McQuaid, each giving her own perspective on using strengths at work
  • Jeremy McCarthy on contributing to other people’s happiness
  • Caroline Miller on grit

The conference is open for free access between March 20 and March 26. After that, there will be a nominal charge for ongoing access. Proceeds from the conference will go to the Christopher Peterson Memorial Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania to honor our memories of Chris and to support future MAPP students.

What is the International Day of Happiness?

From the United Nations:



“The General Assembly of the United Nations in its resolution 66/281PDF document of 12 July 2012 proclaimed 20 March the International Day of Happiness recognizing the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives.

The United Nations invites Member States, international and regional organizations, as well as civil society, including non-governmental organizations and individuals, to observe the International Day of Happiness in an appropriate manner, including through education and public awareness-raising activities.”

The two activities mentioned in this article are ways for you to observe the Internatioal Day of Happiness in an appropriate manner.

So 20 March is the day of happiness, says resolution 66/281. What about the rest of the year, 364 days of unhappiness? That’s what you might get when you outsource your well-being to bureaucrats.
