DC Chapter Ted Talk Tuesday - The Surprising Science of Happiness - Dan Gilbert

DC Chapter Ted Talk Tuesday - The Surprising Science of Happiness - Dan GilbertTuesday, June 2, 2020
Time:
7:00-8:15 p.m. EST
Location: Online
All Attendees: FREE
Join us on the first Tuesday of every month for TTN Ted Talk Tuesday. This month we listen to Dan Gilbert's The Surprising Science of Happiness.

The premise of his current research -- that our assumptions about what will make us happy are often wrong -- is supported with clinical research drawn from psychology and neuroscience. But his delivery is what sets him apart. His engaging -- and often hilarious -- style pokes fun at typical human behavior and invokes pop-culture references everyone can relate to. This winning style translates also to Gilbert's writing, which is lucid, approachable and laugh-out-loud funny. The immensely readable Stumbling on Happiness, published in 2006, became a New York Times bestseller and has been translated into 20 languages.

Many of us are in our 60s, 70s and beyond.  The right to vote for women was approved just 100 years ago.

In celebration of this 100 year anniversary, Author Barbara Benson will share the fascinating history leading up to this significant moment.  Barbara’s recent book, “Massachusetts in the Women’s Suffrage Movement,” reframes the story of the suffrage movement, placing Massachusetts as the birthplace of the movement and recasting the important role of Lucy Stone alongside her more famous colleagues.

Led by former US Vice President Al Gore and CEO and President Ken Berlin, The Climate Reality Project does this by empowering everyday people to become activists, equipped with the tools, training, and network to fight for solutions and drive change planet-wide. The result is over 20,000 Climate Reality Leaders mobilizing communities in over 150 countries.
