Child and adolescent development lay key building blocks for lifelong flourishing. As we learn more about cognitive and brain development, we are increasingly realizing the neurobiological diversity that emerges during development. This workshop, from a team led by Duncan Astle at Cambridge Neuroscience, explores this diversity by asking the question “what does it mean for each child to flourish?” The researchers aim to take a broad and inclusive approach to what might constitute flourishing for each individual. An interdisciplinary group across psychology, biology, informatics, psychiatry, education and social policy, alongside non-academic clinical and educational specialists and those with lived experience will gather to address this topic.

The workshop takes place during Templeton World Charity Foundation’s First Annual Global Scientific Conference on Human Flourishing.
