Third International Conference on Wellbeing & Public Policy Wednesday, 5 September 2018

This third in the series of international conferences on Wellbeing and Public Policy  will (1) critically evaluate the rapidly expanding field of wellbeing research across a range of disciplines; (2) share the work of leading international organisations; and (3) distil ideas and practices which will aid governments in developing a wellbeing approach to public policy.

The first in this series of conferences was held in Wellington in July 2012 (for a review see here). The second conference was held at Hamilton College, New York in 2014 (for a review see here). This third in the series will bring together leading scholars on wellbeing, speakers from several international organisations and senior practitioners with experience in applying wellbeing principles to public policy.

The conference will provide extensive opportunity for participants to network and gain exposure to the latest theoretical, empirical and policy related ideas on wellbeing. As such we are open to a variety of disciplines and methodologies. To enhance participants' experience, collaboration and networking opportunities, a social activity is expected to follow the conference on Saturday, 8 September.
