Networking Breakfast - Thriving Place: How to make what matters counts.

13 March, Triodos Bank, Bristol

We shared insights from the inaugural Thriving Places Index Report, and the results from 150 regions across England. Happy City have been developing place-based measures of progress to challenge GDP since 2010. The Thriving Places Index, launched in January in Westminster in partnership with Triodos Bank, is a pioneering approach to truly considering the conditions that enable us all the thrive, equitably and sustainably.

Happy City presented the report, and we discussed what the findings mean for us all whilst celebrating those organisations who are already working to drive wellbeing.

‘At last - a vision of our living-places that puts people first. It fills me with hope, inspiration and energy. Brilliant, vital and long overdue!’ - Emma Thompson

Networking Breakfast - The Science of Happy
11 October, Triodos Bank, Bristol

Healthy City Week returned from 7 to 14 October and set to create and deepen conversations around some of the major health and sustainability challenges we face.

This networking breakfast was in partnership with Go Green and Triodos Bank and was an ideal chance to meet and network with local organisations, to hear some of the latest research and to discuss what we should - and possibly shouldn't - value in workplaces to keep us happy and healthy.

We all (hopefully) know that we need to feel valued, productive and at ease to produce our best work, but how can we make sure that our workplaces are contributing to this? With more and more importance attached to emotional satisfaction rather than security and financial aspects, how can we make sure we are attracting and retaining the best employees? How can we tell if our workplace is healthy and how can we change it if it isn't? What might smart technology tell us about the needs of staff?
