Video: Nic Marks: The Happy Planet Index

Sep 03

Statistician Nic Marks asks why we measure a nation’s success by its productivity — instead of by the happiness and well-being of its people. He introduces the Happy Planet Index, which tracks national well-being against resource use (because a happy life doesn’t have to cost the earth). Which countries rank highest in the HPI? You might be surprised.


Five Positive Actions (that lead to happiness)

1. Connect

2. Be active

3. Take notice (be mindful)

4. Keep learning

5. Give (we feel better when we give, share, love)
