 Creating a happier world –  with Jeffrey Sachs

Join us for an inspiring evening with Jeffrey Sachs as he explores the causes of happiness and unhappiness in modern Western culture and shares his vision for a better culture and a happier world.

What factors really matter for wellbeing? Why has happiness fallen in some countries even as the economy has grown? What is happening with social trust and inequality in the West? And how can we put things right?
