Happiness Conference Panel: Community Well-Being


Gallup defines Community Well-Being as “the sense of engagement you have with the area where you live.”

According to the World Happiness Report 2020, social support accounts for up to a third of one’s evaluation of life, i.e. one’s happiness. A strong and connected community supports the needs of its members and boosts their wellbeing. The key question is, how do we create a strong and connected community in Singapore?

In this Panel Discussion, we have invited esteemed and actively involved members of community groups in Singapore, to share their expertise and views on creating a strong community.

Attendance of this panel discussion is FREE.
This session is part of the annual Happiness Conference, organised by Happiness Initiative in partnership with National Youth Council.

P.S. The Zoom link for this panel will be given to you automatically upon registration.

Happiness Initiative is a social enterprise that translates the science of happiness and well-being into actions people can take.

Hence, helping people live a more fulfilling life and take a preventive approach towards mental health conditions.

We focus on three areas - raising awareness on the science of wellbeing, translating research into practice and programmes, and building a community that promotes the practice of wellbeing.

At NYC, we believe in a world where young people are respected and heard, and have the ability to influence and make a difference to the world. Together with our partners, we develop future-ready youth who are committed to Singapore by instilling in them a heart for service, resilience and an enterprising spirit.
