Today I met the First Portuguese Happiness Club, which is located at NOVA School of Business and Economics. According to the founders, the club is a student-created, administration-supported club which believes that "happiness should be our full time job". Their goal is to increase the well-being of NOVA's community. By taking the subject of happiness seriously, the NOVA Happiness Club aims to contribute to a better society where the world of education is oriented towards a meaningful and value-based development of human well-being.
They have an internet place: http://www.novahappinessclub.com/; they are hosting the first Portuguese Positive Conference today: http://www.positiveconference.org/; and I feel happier after doing this post :))))))))
There are Free Lunches Statement of Intentions
There are Free Lunches: Behavioral Clues to Live Happy in the Economic World is a blog that intends to present updated and relevant information about the "hidden" and only recently uncovered dimensions of the economic science: the behavioral factors. With this blog we intend to promote in Europe and in the rest of the World, the top research articles and perspectives on behavioral economics, decision making, consumer behavior, and general behavioral science. We aim to be followed by journalists, academics, managers, civil servants, and everyone who wishes to improve their daily interaction with the economic world and consequently, their lives' happiness.
