The 8,000 mile question, “What matters most in life?”
Crossing a big country with walking shoes and a recorder, Paula Francis is researching and reporting on happiness by interviewing thousands of people during the 8,000-plus mile Happiness Walk.
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.
2018 Walk continued in Hawaii then onto Seattle
Paula Francis and fellow walkers resumed the Happiness Walk in Hawaii before venturing north from Petaluma, CA arriving in Seattle, WA by mid May.
