Happiness Community Conversations

Beginning the week of October 14, and extending for five weeks, several library branches will be hosting Happiness Community Conversations, open to the public, for youth and adults. These conversations complement the University of Arizona’s College of Social and Behavioral Sciences 2013 Downtown Lecture Series on Happiness.

Participants in the Happiness Community Conversations are encouraged to attend the UA Happiness Lecture Series, held on five Wednesdays from mid-October to mid-November at the Fox Theatre downtown, but it is not a requirement. The library conversations will include ideas from the lectures and take a creative and community leap forward, encouraging "next steps" for Tucson's residents to take as individual and community members in order to create a happier and more prosperous Tucson.

All the sessions are facilitated by professionals who work with Community Renaissance. For more information about Community Renaissance, contact Anita Fonte at 520-331-5582 or visit the website community-renaissance.com.

During the discussion this summary of the World Happiness Report may be referenced.

This week's topic: Happiness—A Feeling or a Future?

Suggested Community Conversation Questions:

  • What is your idea of a "good life?" Describe how it is the same or different from your expectation of it a decade ago.
  • As you imagine your life five years from now, how would your description of your "good life" be the same and be different?
  • What steps are you willing to take to create this future "good life?" Is there a way you can do this with others? Why or why not?
