Action For Happiness Charity

EDM number 1743 in 2010-12, proposed by Jo Swinson on 26/04/2011.
Categorised under the topic of Mental health.

That this House welcomes the launch of Action for Happiness, a charity which aims to bring people together to help create a happier society, by being a hub for the exchange of new ideas and the dissemination of reliable information; notes that large surveys such as Eurobarometer show the UK's life satisfaction has only changed marginally during the last quarter of a century and other studies even suggest a decline; encourages people to sign up to the Action for Happiness campaign at its website; further welcomes the Office for National Statistics' efforts to measure national wellbeing; and urges the Government to integrate the findings of wellbeing research into its policy making process so that it can play its part in promoting the happiness of the nation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 18 MPs.
