The Global Happiness Project | New Tech Network

This project, which took place throughout the spring of 2014, asked teachers and students around the world to explore the following questions:

  • What elements contribute to a happy and healthy society?
  • How well do our own local and global communities measure up?
  • How can we use data, creativity, and community to make the world a happier place?

Through the Global Happiness Project, students engaged in a virtual conversation about the components of a happy society, and co-designed and implemented a survey to measure these components at the local and global level. Later, students analyzed the results of this survey and used what they learned to inform an advocacy project designed to improve at least one area of happiness at the local or global level.
