Kids conference on International Happiness Day

"I could experience what it's like to be a refugee, but I also knew I can go home afterwards. Other kids don't have that luxury."

Lara (10) took part in the HOPE XXL Children's Conference today. We organized this together with two organizations working in education and the conference took place at the Humanity House in The Hague. Visitors can experience the life of a refugee: for a while, it's like they don't have a passport, a home or any rights. 

The HOPE XXL workshops were a bit more cheerful: Together with the children we discussed how to boost happiness worldwide. They had some great ideas, such as organizing a "happiest day of your life" for every person in the world. 

The Children's Conference took place on the International Day of Happiness: A great day to discuss how we can contribute to making the world a happier place!
