The last week of October, the International Positive Education Network (IPEN) offered its first-ever online conference. IPEN focuses on the application of positive psychology and related fields within an educational setting to encourage students, faculty, schools, universities, and communities to flourish. To present the Wellbeing in Education Virtual Conference, IPEN partnered with the TecMilenio University Institute for Happiness and Wellbeing.

Wholebeing Institute was a sponsor, and we enjoyed facilitating the after-event community conversations, too. 

Our WBI community was well represented, with Certificate in Wholebeing Positive Psychology alums from around the world presenting, including:

And Henrique Bueno, founder and CEO of Wholebeing Institute in Brazil, and I presented “Living Into What You Want Others to Learn.” Here’s the 15-minute recording.
Along with attending presentations, participations could also visit virtual “booths,” including ours. Here’s the video we showed, sharing the WBI story.
