So, what is happiness?

Some people prefer the word wellbeing, others contentment, others like the idea of flourishing – all with good reason. We stick with the word happiness because it means something to everyone, you don’t need to be an academic or a policy maker to be interested. It’s not associated with any one religion or ideology. From our experience around the world, everyone – regardless of age, gender, race or background – wants to find happiness for themselves and those they love.
