But what is human flourishing?
Project Flourish defines human flourishing as the ability to experience happiness & life satisfaction, maintain high mental & physical health, find meaning & purpose in what they do with a strong sense of character & virtue and having plenty of strong close social relationships.
In the context of Permacolony, the team’s vision is an adaptive ecosystem that embraces human autonomy, an integrated community, transformative technologies, a personalised flourishing growth plan and achieving self-transendence.
On a wider scale, Project Flourish recently held a virtual gathering of cross-disciplinary experts from around the world to discuss how the mesh of Wellbeing x Tech x Cities can be achieved to address mental health and develop human potential for all.
