The Dutch Liemers region will become the happiest on earth. In the coming years municipalities, businesses, non-governmental organizations and individuals will work together to achieve this ambitious goal. HOPE XXL initiator Chris van de Ven: "We are asking the United Nations to ensure that every person can achieve a life they can grade as 'good'. In the meantime we will start working on this in the Liemers region: Think global, act local."

Council members from four different regional municipalities will meet on Thursday 8 January to discuss this initiative. Together with the VU University Amsterdam effects on wellbeing will be monitored over the coming years.

An exciting new project: More news is to follow!
