Happiness Jam - Meaningful metrics for a moment to moment life

In our research for the Architecting Happiness project, we were lucky to meet Marco van Hout, a thought leader and expert in Design for Emotion based in Amsterdam. He is also interested in exploring how we can specifically design for happiness. Marco has created a special innovation workshop for Architecting Happiness.

Happiness Jam - Meaningful metrics for a moment to moment life

Thursday, April 30th, 2015.
Time: 9-14h.
Venue: Betahaus Barcelona. Carrer de Vilafranca, 7, 08024 Barcelona
Limited to 25 participants

In a quantifying world, the qualified self becomes ever more relevant. 
When it is less about the raw technology, but about the integration of that technology in society and people’s lives, how can we design solutions that use the opportunities of data and quantification, and combine that with a focus on living from moment-to-moment, which leads to a happier life?

Welcoming a wide range of professionals with an interest in designing solutions for a happier society. 

Share your expertise and passion in this intimate, co-creative workshop and end the day with a prototype for happiness!
