WALKING THE HAPPINESS TALK
Paula Francis, along with others who join her, is crossing a big country with walking shoes and a recorder, researching and reporting on happiness.
She walks to tap the innate wisdom of those she meets ‘on the road’ and to ultimately align policies of our systems, institutions and our government with a newly defined set of values. “We ought to uphold our basic right – and that of future generations – to the pursuit of happiness. When our measures of progress and success are not aligned with our values, individuals, our humanity, and the planet suffer,” she says.
The Happiness Walk is a project of GNHUSA. We are currently analyzing thousands of these interviews from people all across the country to uncover our core common values. What we are finding just may surprise you.👣
The Happiness Walk has discovered that, contrary to what we may hear in traditional media, we are mostly very much alike – we value the same things!
