At the core of our polycentric approach
What is an Agora?
(in ancient Greece) a public open space used for assemblies and markets.
At The World Happiness Foundation we believe in polycentric interconnected systems (meaning that we have chapters worldwide all interconnected through a shared mission). These systems enhance innovation, learning, adaptation, trustworthiness, levels of cooperation of participants, and the achievement of more effective, equitable, and sustainable outcomes on multiple levels.
We therefore celebrate our Agoras and aim to support you in every way we can in gathering your community together. Agoras can be anything from 9 to 10,000+ personal gatherings for a couple of hours or days and/or virtual events broadcast to our larger international community through our digital events platform Hopin. By hosting an Agora you become a part of our global network. We invite you to participate in many of our events including our Summits and World Happiness Week experiences which reached 10 million people in 2020!
