 From Me to We: creating happiness together

Join us for a special celebration event about the journey from “me” to “we” and how to create more happiness together.

BBC presenter Leo Johnson will share an entertaining overview of the amazing things that happen when we get together in our local communities. We will then hear from four inspiring people about some really practical and life-changing ways to help create more happiness locally.

We hope you’ll come away feeling happier and also with some great new ideas and motivation to help contribute to a happier and kinder world.
