Building Wellbeing Together Weekend: Amazing Speakers and Stunning Venue!


** Limited number of early bird tickets available: Book your place today! ** 

How can we build wellbeing together; in our own lives, in wider society and in harmony with the natural world? The Network of Wellbeing and Hawkwood College are exploring this question at the Building Wellbeing Together Weekend in Stroud from 22nd - 24th September 2017 in Stroud, UK.

And you can join us there too! Early bird tickets are available now, and prices include accommodation at Hawkwood College’s beautiful listed venue, with delicious home cooked food and stunning grounds (pictured right). 

Working together for wellbeing: Key note speakers

Prominent speakers also joining us at the Building Wellbeing Together Weekend, include:

All of these speakers will highlight why wellbeing matters as a personal and a collective issue.

Roger Higman, Director at the Network of Wellbeing, said “Wellbeing for everyone should be at the heart of what business and government does, yet it too often gets forgotten in a dash for profit and economic growth. At the Building Wellbeing Together Weekend, we’ll put wellbeing centre stage and ask how we can work together to create a society that meets everyone’s needs”.    

Highlighting the importance of this type of event, Katherine Trebeck, Senior Researcher at Oxfam, said: “Wellbeing is only going to be delivered if we’re working together, so it is really valuable to spend some decent, quality time together with practitioners and with thought leaders, asking hard questions about wellbeing – how do we deliver it and what are the blockers to the wellbeing agenda? And also to build momentum and enthusiasm, too”. 

Time to get involved: Interactive workshops

Besides key note speakers, the Building Wellbeing Together Weekend will feature workshops where participants will share and learn best practice and discuss how we can co-create a happier world.  These include:

Shamash Alidina, from the Museum of Happiness said: “I am really excited about this event. There is an amazing list of speakers joining, and the location is really beautiful, too. Hawkwood College offers a lovely balance of education and connection to nature, and a very peaceful atmosphere”.

Located within the enchanting 19th Century Grade II listed Hawkwood College and amidst 42 acres of beautiful, sustainably managed grounds, Building Wellbeing Together promises to be a delight for the senses as well as the mind.

The Building Wellbeing Together Weekend is open to everyone who wants a world that favours happier people, healthier communities and a sustainable planet.
