Welcome to the conference page for Well-Being 2021: Knowledge for informed decisions.
This international conference will bring together leading scholars to discuss the quest for better lives. Economists traditionally advocated economic growth as the foremost policy goal, but now even economists often challenge this view. The discussion remains open, indeed flourishes, with more contributors than ever. How do we promote well-being? What are the best policies? What is the role for civil society?
The conference will take place over three days from the 28th to the 30th of June 2021. We have scheduled four keynote speakers and a roundtable discussing how policy-makers can integrate the findings from well-being studies. Registration fees are 275 EUR and 200 EUR for students.
