World Happiness Fest is the largest event on Happiness and Wellbeing in the world. The forum is committed to achieving the UN Social Development Goals and to working to help build a better future. Created by Luis Gallardo in 2016, this Spanish initiative is now represented in more than 60 countries.
In New York, the World Happiness Fest is organised by La Escuelita de la Vida - the Social Network for Personal Growth. The 2021 theme is "Unlocking The Power of Belonging", with speakers and workshops highlighting the fundamental need of human connection and meaningful experiences.
Adapting to the circumstances caused by Coronavirus, the event will take place online on Saturday, March 20th, coinciding with the International Day of Happiness. It will start at 12.30 pm (New York time). Be sure to join on time - access is limited. Join us here!
