Art of wellbeing
There is lots of talk about happiness and well-being at the moment but what do these words really mean?
"The Art of Wellbeing" is a new one day workshop that demonstrates how to create enterprises, initiatives or projects that fulfil fundamental human needs.
Through interactive exercises and group discussions we will explore questions such as:
• How can we design a project or social enterprise so that it maximises well-being?
• How can we find the leverage points to turn a good social enterprise into a great one?
• Can we gain insights into well-being that can help us identify new social enterprises or gaps in the market?
• What processes or activities make it easier for ourselves and others to change behaviour?
Can we measure well-being? And if so, how can we create ways to increase it?
You will gain:
• a new language with which to communicate the value of your project
• a deeper understanding of what motivates people's decisions
• tools with which to assess the impact your project is having, or can have, on your community's well-being
• Loads of inspiration
This workshop is based on the ground breaking work of the Chilean economist Manfred Max-Neef.
