Economy, planet, markets and you
The UN designates March 20 of every year as “International Day of Happiness” to celebrate the importance of happiness and well-being as “universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings worldwide and in public policy objectives".
This special, two-part episode of “2050 Investors” is all about happiness. What does it mean to be happy in the 21st century, what is happiness, can we measure and influence it on a national or worldwide scale? And can we decarbonise our pursuit of happiness?
Join Kokou Agbo-Bloua in this exploration of the scientific, cultural, environmental and economic factors that contribute to overall wellbeing. Kokou also dispels common myths and explains why some of the external markers of happiness may not actually bring us the felicity we seek.
