Why Lake Como, Italy?
Don’t miss the opportunity to explore a playground of art, culture & nature!
Lake Como, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the perfect spot for The World Happiness Summit 2023. It offers a beautiful setting which inspires a sense of awe, relaxation and openness, making it easier to become aware of our surroundings, go within and establish bonds.
We need connection not only to survive but also to thrive and recognize the common ground we all share: humanity.
We chose connection as the theme for WOHASU 2023 because it is key to wellbeing. In fact, the greatest indicator of happiness is the quality of our social connections. The 80-year Harvard Study for Adult Development reported that the people who had a social support system and positive relationships had more satisfying, healthier and longer lives.
Connection satisfies our needs as social beings, but we are not only referring to the relational field. We refer to a broader approach as we can connect with ourselves and our surroundings in different ways that matter. It is important to establish a healthy connection with ourselves first to pursue a healthy connection with others.
