Summary of the first day Global Happy Cities Summit

Yesterday, on 21 June, we celebrated the opening ceremony of the Global Happy Cities Summit and the launch of the 3-month Happy Cities Marathon, which will run from the Solstice to the Autumn Equinox. 150+ positive change leaders from cities around the world joined this exciting event. The participants discussed the purpose and mission of the Living Cities Earth, took part in a delightful Solstice Meditation and joined an expert panel discussion on happiness and the possibilities for its development for 10,000 cities globally.
