Global Flourishing: Igniting Change through Personal Wellbeing 
Looking through the lens of wellbeing, Dr. Mary Jo Kreitzer will challenge us to become a catalyst for change in our personal lives and the world around us.

Greater than the Greatest Good? 
What, if anything, do we appraise as more valuable than happiness? How do our ideas about purpose and authentic experience inform our understanding of well-being? Drawing from philosophy, published research, and her own experience as a touring musician, Dessa talks about happiness, meaning, art, and the drive to lead a self-determined life.5:00 - 6:45 pm: Enjoy a festival with food available for purchase, music, interactive wellbeing activities, therapy animals, and more.
