Unlocking the Secrets of Happiness with Dan Buettner

February 27, 2024 at 7 p.m.
The Sandra Levine Theatre
Queens University of Charlotte

Dan Buettner is an explorer, National Geographic Fellow, award-winning journalist and producer, and New York Times bestselling author. He discovered the five places in the world – dubbed blue zones hotspots – where people live the longest, healthiest lives.

Working with Gallup, The World Values Survey and the World Data Base on Happiness, Dan Buettner and his team found the three pockets around the world where people report the highest level of well-being -- or happiness – and then researched each of these hotspots and distilled down the common denominators in each place. What can governments do to maximize the well-being of their citizens? And more importantly, what can we do as individuals to stack the deck in our favor to maximize happiness?
