advaya events

Join the Network of Wellbeing (NOW) and Advaya Initiative for an evening with an inspiring panel of changemakers. Together we will explore what mindfulness, wellbeing and happiness have to do with changing the world.

In today’s world, we are learning more about what can help us to create truly thriving lives and societies, and many people and projects are working towards more positive visions of the future. Yet alongside this, there are so many social, political and environmental challenges facing us that it can feel overwhelming. It can be hard not to become frustrated, demotivated and hopeless.

Through the evening we will ask:

  • How can we sustain our activism in the long term?

  • How can we maintain the strength to confront the problems of the world, and build new ways of doing things that are better for people and planet?

  • What role do practices and topics such as mindfulness, wellbeing and happiness have to do with activism and changing the world?

In Colloboration with

In Network Of Wellbing’s vision for the world, everyone’s wellbeing needs are met within the planet’s natural limits.

NOW is committed to a broad view of wellbeing. They believe that a person’s wellbeing depends on the wellbeing of the community in which they live and work, while the wellbeing of their community depends on the wellbeing of society as a whole, and the long-term health of the natural world on which we all depend.

In their work, NOW supports an active network of people and organisations who care about wellbeing. There work currently involves:

Building a wellbeing network, where people and organisations can connect, engage and find out more about wellbeing;
Community wellbeing activities, for example through projects, supporting others’ initiatives, running events and offering resources;
Furthering the wellbeing agenda, by helping raise awareness about wellbeing as a key societal issue.
