Wellbeing is the Purpose. Join the WOHASU Global Community! Bring your friends, network with like-minded individuals, and learn how to use science to become happier in all areas of life.

We chose PURPOSE as the theme for WOHASU 2024 because it is key to wellbeing for a powerful reason. Research consistently shows that having a clear sense of purpose can significantly enhance overall well-being and life satisfaction. According to various academic studies, individuals with a strong sense of purpose tend to live longer, experience lower levels of stress, and have better mental health. Join us to explore how discovering and aligning with your life’s purpose can lead to a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life!
