Hello. My name is Christine. This is an interesting topic for a meetup group.
Action for Happiness (USA) is a movement for positive social change. We're bringing together people from all walks of life who want to play a part in creating a happier society for everyone.
For fifty years we've aimed relentlessly at higher incomes. But despite being much wealthier, we're no happier than we were five decades ago. At the same time we've seen an increase in wider social issues, including a worrying rise in anxiety and depression in young people. It's time for a positive change in what we mean by progress.
We are 1) bringing together like-minded people 2) to draw upon the latest scientific research from the fields of psychology, education, economics, social innovation and 3) to be in action in our lives and our communities
