Event Navigation

Scott Cloutier — an assistant professor in the ASU School of Sustainability and a senior sustainability scientist in the university’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability — and Beth Ann Morrison, a doctoral student working with Cloutier to establish the Happiness and Sustainability Research Lab, will lead a workshop on “Linking Sustainability and Happiness” from 2 to 4 p.m. in the ISU Design on Main classroom and speak about “Sustainable Neighborhoods for Happiness” in a public lecture at 6 p.m. in the Design on Main Gallery.

The two will introduce the Sustainable Neighborhoods for Happiness Index (SNHI), meant to assess a neighborhood’s opportunities for happiness via sustainable design. They will then highlight the Sustainability through Happiness Framework as a participatory, neighborhood-based research process undertaken by students and a research team in close collaboration with community partners.

They will conclude by sharing new conceptualizations on assessing community development and design programs meant to simultaneously enhance sustainability and happiness.
