Happiness Newsletter

This is the first newsletter focused on our Happiness Initiative. You can sign up for our newsletter here and keep up to date with all our actions and projects.

So what is all this happiness stuff anyway?

Sustainable Seattle and Take Back Your Time joined forces to create our 5th set of sustainability indicators. With a 20 year history behind us, this time we are basing our work on the Gross National Happiness Index & the 9 Domains of Happiness.

"You get what you measure" says Seattle City Councilmember Mike O'Brien. That's what it's all about: getting a comprehensive assessment of our well-being and inspiring & engaging people, organizations and policy makers to action.
