Event 155 Meik Wiking: The Little Book of Lyyke

Friday 2 March, 12pm-1pm   Al Ras 1, InterContinental

Authors: Meik Wiking
The Little Book of Hygge was a runaway success and redefined ‘contentment’ for the world. Author Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute, has been called ‘the Indiana Jones of smiles’ – and now he’s back on a new quest to unlock the doors to happiness (or lyyke) for us all!

Wiking’s native Denmark is considered the happiest country in the world, but he believes that the secrets of happiness are hidden around the globe. From how we spend our time to how we relate to neighbours and cook dinner, join him to discover how we can all find a little more lykke in our lives.

Meik will be in conversation with Christopher Bradley.

Event 44 The Soul of a City: Afra Atiq, Yara Bamieh, Eric Broug, Meik Wiking

Saturday 3 March, 12pm-1pm   Al Ras 3, InterContinental

Is a city built by its architects or the people who inhabit it?

Dubai is unusual in being a global city that appeared almost overnight. How does a new city acquire its ‘spark’?

Our panel of art, architecture and design and wellbeing experts goes in search of the soul of a city.

Afra Atiq is an Emirati spoken-word poet. She is a member of the Untitled Chapters group and has a large YouTube following.

Yara Bamieh is a graphic designer and illustrator based in Ramallah; she has worked on conservation, reconstruction and cultural projects in Palestine.

Eric Broug is a master of Islamic geometric design who consults on architectural projects, advising on creative and effective use of Islamic heritage.

Meik Wiking is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute and the author of The Little Book of Lykke, which shares six factors that explain the differences in happiness across the world.

This panel is moderated by Rachel McArthur.
