International GNH meet next year to mark Fourth King’s 60th Birth Anniversary

As part of the fourth Druk Gyalpo’s 60th birth anniversary celebrations, an international GNH conference is being planned for November next year. The plan was announced during Lyonchhoen’s visit to Japan. About 600 participants are expected, half of them international. It’s open to the public, too. The agenda for the conference includes discussing concepts and policies concerning human well-being, societal progress and happiness. Others include research collaborations and best practice models to operationalize GNH and providing creative cross cultural exchanges to revitalize indigenous cultures. The idea is to discuss the nine domains of GNH which are psychological wellbeing, health, education, culture, time use, good governance, community vitality, ecological diversity, resilience and living standards.
