Dalai Lama Event - Mon 21 September

Creating A Happier World - Event Image V 4 Smaller

We were so honoured that our patron The Dalai Lama joined us for a very special afternoon event on Monday 21 September 2015 (World Peace Day) in London. The event looked at how to create a happier and more caring world and celebrated the work which Action for Happiness supporters are doing to make a difference.

As well as the Action for Happiness founders and team, the event included:

  • Daniel Goleman - who shared the key messages from A Force For Good, his wonderful new book about the Dalai Lama's vision for our world 
  • Suzy Greaves - who talked about shifting our culture towards happiness and why hundreds of people are forming their own 'happiness clubs'
  • Richie Davidson - who shared the very latest research about the neuroscience of happiness and compassion
  • Matthieu Ricard - who explored why compassion is vital and how we can create a kinder and more caring world
