Fontys University of Applied Sciences proudly presents the first online edition of the Fontys International Week from 9-11 November 2020. The event is organised by all Fontys Schools within the domain of Human & Society. Fontys is delighted to invite lecturers and staff of our partner universities to our International Week with the central theme ‘Happiness for the Next Generation’.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic we have made the decision to offer you an inspiring online programme in Microsoft Teams. Of course, the offered presentations and lectures will be innovative again this year. The workshops we offer include subjects such as: Human Resources, Psychology, Refugees, Talent & Career Development, Diversity, Welfare & Wellbeing, Labour & Health, Youth, People & Health, IT and the interface between Humans & Technology. We are looking forward to see you online!
Can we be happier?
Welcome! Your international week of online happiness starts here! After our first meeting -where we got to know each other a little bit - we prepare ourselves for an inspirational lecture.
Professor Richard Layard is a labour economist who worked for most of his life on how to reduce unemployment and inequality. In his recently published book, Can We Be Happier?, the happiness professor offers precepts for a happier life based on scientific research.
The webinar will end with an assignment from Sir Richard Layard to immerse yourself in the fascinating material.
