Description

“If you want to increase your happiness, don’t buy new products, change your behaviour." Positive psychologists sometimes advise that not too much ought to be expected from the contributions to subjective wellbeing made by consumer products. This workshop challenges this view by proposing that design can increase happiness. The central question addressed is: How can design contribute to human flourishing?
