Happiness, wellbeing and quality of life have been climbing up the public policy agenda in recent years, with governments apparently devoting increasing attention to how to improve people’s life satisfaction. But what lies beneath these warm words about the need to improve quality of life?
This event will bring researchers and policy-makers together to explore some of the evidence on what makes people happy, considering the relations between genes and happiness and what causes humans to be optimistic. It will seek to draw out the implications for policy and consider how policy-makers can act to help to improve quality of life and deliver on their promises of happiness.
