"How will this impact our children?" It's the profound question through which every major decision is filtered to ensure that well-being is consistently cultivated in Lappeenranta, Finland. In this engaging and interactive session, participants will learn how and why Myllymaki primary school in Lappeenranta, Finland, and Experience Happiness, a Minnesota-based company, are collaborating to bring The Happiness Practice (THP) into every Finnish classroom. Their collaboration began in 2018 when leaders in Lappeenranta sought a solution to enhance the teacher-student relationship - a foundational ingredient of Finland's renowned education system. Since then, Myllymaki teachers working with special needs children have engaged in THP; and Return On Happiness (ROH) results have demonstrated measurably reduced stress & burnout, increased engagement, and improved student behavior. Learn from Finnish education leaders about Finland's well-being strategy and how THP is being deployed to cultivate the happiness and wellbeing of teachers and students of all ages.
