  • 2. T h e ( W h a t )The H(app)athon Project (www.happathon.com), is a twelve-month initiative comprised of awareness-building events, surveys and hackathons with the goal of  “Crowdsourcing a Vision for the HappinessEconomy."  Guided by a Committee of thirty experts from organizations including the United Nations, World EconomicForum, salesforce.com, Microsoft, and MIT, the Project wants to “hack happiness” by shifting how theworld primarily looks at value or wealth via the lens of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).  By utilizingemerging technology and the growing body of happiness indicators around the world, the Project seeks toempower individuals, businesses, and governmental organizations to imagine, define and build a moreholistic view of well-being that’s not based just on money. Inspired by the Mashable article, The Value of a Happiness Economy, written by the Project’s founder, theProject’s focus is on spreading awareness and well-being in the Big Data era where ethics and privacyhave not been standardized for technologies like Quantified Self, the Internet of Things, and mobilesensors.The Project’s work will culminate on March 20, 2014 with the launch of an open-source App that will helpusers identify and optimize well-being in their lives, encourage others to do the same, and provide a“global mood ring” that provides real-time happiness data from around the world.T h e ( W h y )World leaders, inspired by Bhutan’s, “Gross National Happiness” (GNH) have become disillusioned by theGDP’s primary focus of wealth creation as the standard for well-being in the world. The United Nations,inspired by GNH, called for all the Nations of the world to explore how the study of quantitative metricsfocused on multiple facets of people’s lives could better guide policy making for the future.Using the tools already tracking our behavior and aligning with this mindset of enlightened globalmeasurement, combined with the expertise of over thirty organizations as part of the H(app)athon AdvisoryCommittee, the H(app)athon Project aims to ‘hack happiness’ and change the idea that a person’s primaryworth should be focused on wealth. We invite you to join our work, understand the power of your data andwell-being, and change the world, for good." " "Let’s get H(app)y. the h(app)athon project MEDIA KIT 2013
