Investigate happiness to create good life

The Davines Group supports two research projects on happiness and collective and individual well-being, conscious of the correlation between this issue and the environment and its importance in building a new sustainable development model.

The World Happiness Report is an annual publication by the UN SDSN (United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network), under the auspices of the UN Secretary General, which studies and measures perceptions of global happiness by ranking 156 Countries according to their citizens’ happiness. Written by a multidisciplinary group of independent experts, it is based on an assessment method that intertwines social, economic and psychological criteria.

The Davines Group also participates in working groups organized as part of the “Science & Ethics for Happiness” initiative and aimed at exploring the subject of happiness by connecting scientific investigations, philosophical knowledge and spiritual teachings. The meetings, organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences in collaboration with the United Nations, bring together academics, philosophers, scientists, spiritual leaders and enlightened entrepreneurs, fostering a constructive dialogue designed to achieve a shared and viable understanding of the notion of happiness.
