Our vision for the Action for Happiness movement involves local
groups of like-minded people joining up to share ideas and
There is now a vast array of evidence about how we can create
happier lives, but most of this isn't yet being acted on in
our homes, schools, businesses and communities. So if
you believe that happiness matters, and want to be part of
building a happier society, then why not create a local group
today and start putting these ideas into practice together.
Basic group principles
If you'd like to start a group but don't know people nearby who might be interested, the best thing to do is:
When you've identified people to be involved in your group (either via meetup or otherwise) then we suggest that you use whatever tools you feel most comfortable with to manage the group. For example, this could be via:
Post your group on our website
Once you've got the basic idea for your group in place remember to post it on our Groups and Events page so anyone visiting the Action for Happiness site can see it (and also so we're aware that it exists).
In addition to people setting up new Action for Happiness groups, we also want thousands of existing groups and organisations to think about what they can do to help boost the well-being of the people whose lives they affect. Examples of existing groups might include museums, faith groups, social clubs, community action groups, adult education providers, parent support groups, nursing homes, youth clubs, student unions, housing associations and many more.
We would love to help existing groups to apply our 10 Keys to Happier Living to:
If you're part of an existing organisation or group that would like to use the 10 Keys to Happier Living then please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you set up an Action for Happiness group then we expect you to abide by the following rules:
Aims: the aims and objectives of your group must be in line with the principles of Action for Happiness - i.e. focused in some way on helping to create a happier society.
Activities: the activies of the group must be non-commercial in nature. Leading a group is done on a voluntary basis and no group leader (or member) is expected to make any commercial gain from running or being involved with a group.
Communication: group leaders are expected to inform Action for Happiness that a group has been set up and reply to reasonable requests for information about the group's activities.
Thanks for keeping to the rules! We hope your group is a great success.
Connect with people
Together we're stronger
Having a network of social connections or high levels of social support has been shown to increase our immunity to infection, lower our risk of heart disease and reduce mental decline as we get older.
Not having close personal ties has been shown to pose significant risks for our health.
I lead a local history walk so people can get to know their town nulla facilisi. Curabitur enim lacus, gravida nec, varius nec, blandit id, libero. Morbi orci velit, porttitor sed, imperdiet ac, ullamcorper id, arcu. Etiam cursus diam eu null.
We just need a little bit of information about you before we can add this to ouractions for happiness.
We’ll be in touch soon to give you updates on how the movement is growing
