12:11Viivi Kuusiaho, JYU.Wisdom CoordinatorDear Iris, there is no need to register. The event will start at 12:15.

13:01KaroliinaHow about Maslows work, that Scott Kaufman has summoned in his book Transcend? Maslow and Kaufman have interesting thought concerning these questions. For example, Maslow saw flourishing as the ability to feel real emotions, and happiness is something that somewhat happens along the way, but is not the main aim. To change society for the better, it is crucial to experience all emotiona to guide your way - this is LinkedIn to eastern wisdom traditions.

13:02KaroliinaSorry for the spelling mistakes, very difficult to write to this little box!

13:35Viivi Kuusiaho, JYU.Wisdom CoordinatorThank you everybody for attending. Have a nice day and summer!

13:38Jo LauThank you very much! It has been wonderful to listen to the speakers! Nice stuff to ponder over for the summer!

How is this connected to psychological and philosophical concepts of wisdom, planetary well-being, and human wellbeing?
