Human Flourishing at the Heart of Policy

A panel explores how we might improve public policy through research working to broaden understanding of flourishing.

As research to broaden understanding of flourishing in diverse contexts expands, so does its potential to impact our shared future. At Templeton World Charity Foundation’s Global Scientific Conference on Human Flourishing, a panel moderated by Laura Helmuth of Scientific American, discussed leveraging research findings and applications to impact short- and long-term public policy. The conversation explored different schools of thought on how a holistic approach to policymaking can set the stage for flourishing. A range of factors to be considered were highlighted, including culture, community, sustainability, and systemic change.
