Flourishing from Science to Policy - Lecture

Director of the Cambridge University Well-being Institute  and adviser to the UK Government, Felicia Huppert will present the Sydney Ideas Lecture "Flourishing from Science to Policy" this month.

This presentation will explore the issue of how well-being should be defined and measured, and its principle determinants at the individual and population level. Evidence from behavioral science and neuroscience will be presented, which supports the use of well-being interventions as an effective means of enhancing flourishing in individuals and organizations. Particular attention will be paid to mindfulness training, which with its emphasis on curiosity, awareness and kindness towards oneself and others, can be regarded as foundational to flourishing.
