Advances in Well-Being and Policy June 17th Geary Institute

I am organising a roundtable workshop on June 17th. It will take place between 11am and 4pm in the Geary Institute boardroom with kind venue support from the UCD Geary Institute. The workshop will hear a set of short talks on ongoing developments in the study of subjective well-being and public policy, including the development of national well-being frameworks, advances in subjective well-being measurement, current state of knowledge of connections between well-being, climate, health and policy, and other topics.  Presentation of policy papers, work in progress and/or potential project ideas are encouraged alongside regular research paper presentations. Bloomsday the day to celebrate James Joyce's famous book Ulysses takes place the day before so there will be at least some space devoted to day reconstruction methods! I will also organise the session to allow for a focused discussion on publication, research funding, and policy application.
