Aspen Ideas Festival 2018: Where in the World Is Happiness?


The United States is not a particularly happy country, according to the World Happiness Report.

The rankings are based on measures of income, healthy life expectancy, social support, freedom, trust, and generosity. But at least the residents of Boulder, CO, aren’t feeling blue — and the mayor will explain why. Her city earned top ranking on the National Geographic Happiest Cities list, which examines civic engagement, walkability, and healthful food options.

Speakers are Susanne Jones, the mayor of Boulder Colorado, Dan Buettner author of Blue Zones, and Steve Clemons Editor in Chief of AtlanticLIVE.
