About the event:

Many policy discussions and empirical studies throughout the social sciences focus on very narrow outcomes of wellbeing — such as income, a specific disease state or measures of positive affect — but human wellbeing and flourishing stem from a vast range of states and outcomes. 

Flourishing can be understood as a state of living in which all aspects of a person’s life are good, including, but not limited to, happiness and life satisfaction, physical and mental health, meaning and purpose, character and virtue, and close social relationships.
