"I feel that there must be some convergence among nations on the idea of what the primary objective of development and progress should be - something Gross National Happiness seeks to bring about".

                    H.M. Jigme Khesar Wangchuck



Aims
The major aim of the 3rd International Conference on Gross National Happiness is to provide a platform for creative exchanges and multi-stakeholder dialogue towards re-thinking development. Concepts of development are part of our world views. Reflections on current scientific and professional paradigms may lead to guidelines for global transformation.

 


Inspired by the example of efforts being made in Bhutan to guide development by Gross National Happiness; the indications of H.M. the King of Thailand towards Sufficiency Economy; and grassroot initiatives all over the world exploring similar pathways to overcome suffering; the aims of the conference will be:

  • To provide a creative platform for inspirational exchanges on transformation, revitalization of ancient culture and simplicity in the context of modernity. As well as for cross-cultural communication on transformational world views through story-telling.
  • To facilitate exchanges, interaction, scientific debate and networking facilitating research being done on Gross National Happiness and related issues including Sufficiency Economy; to prepare for ongoing research frameworks
  • To strengthen and innovate effective approaches and supporting networks inducing tangible results towards the improvement of people's happiness, well-being, peace and Human Security involving all stakeholders

* NGO's, civil society 
* governments and intergovernmental bodies 
* corporate sector, business networks and social entrepreneurs
* academics and students


While recognizing genuine happiness as the (spiritual) force able to confront and alleviate suffering, as well as being the result of these efforts.
