Robert Waldinger: Unlocking the Secret to Happiness

  • - (AEST)
  • Science Theatre (F13), UNSW Kensington
    University Mall, Kensington NSW 2052, Australia

As we grapple with a cost of living crisis and increasing individual isolation, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, disconnected and downcast. But what if the secrets to unlocking a happier life were right in front of you, and not that far out of reach? 

Over a remarkable 85 years, the Harvard Study of Adult Development has conducted an unprecedented investigation on happiness. Through this extensive research, led by distinguished Harvard researcher (and TED talk celebrity) Robert Waldinger, the study unearthed a profound truth: the key to a fulfilled life lies not in financial wealth or our work, but rather in the power of our relationships.

Join Robert Waldinger for an evening of discovery, as he discusses his remarkable study which uncovers the recipe for a happier life with Dr Stephanie Ward (expert geriatrician on the ABC’s Old People's Home for 4 Year Olds and Teenagers).

This event is presented by the UNSW Centre for Ideas and UNSW Medicine & Health as a part of National Science Week, and is supported by Byron Writers Festival and Brisbane Powerhouse.
