Most of us think of joy as something we’d like to experience more of, but could cultivating joy actually help change the world for the better? Could we learn to appreciate each other more? Build more vibrant communities? Love our planet more? The answer, according to presenters at the recent Global Joy Summit, was an unequivocal ‘yes.’
Your generosity enables us to provide the vital resources and opportunities—that aren’t available elsewhere—to foster rigorous research and to educate, support, and inspire the most innovative thinkers and doers in the field. This is a moment of great opportunity to make an impact.
