Curating Urban Happiness
Around the world, governments are joining the Happiness Movement by collecting data on happiness and wellbeing, however there is little understanding around how to use it.
The Seattle Happy Lab is a collaborative, data-driven initiative which seeks to help Seattle gain global recognition as a world leader in the Happiness Movement. We believe that Seattle can set an example for governments on how to influence community levels of wellbeing through programs and policy.
By bringing together researchers and community members to further Seattle's 2011 Happiness Initiative, the Lab will raise awareness of the Happiness Movement, collect and analyze happiness data, and advise the City of Seattle on how to utilize the data for policy-making.
