Director of Action for Happiness
Dr Mark Williamson has been Director of Action for Happiness since October 2010 and has overall strategic and operational responsibility for the organisation. He has taken it from an idea on paper to a mass participation movement with tens of thousands of members and a wide range of activities. He has a long-standing interest in happiness and well-being and is passionate about creating a more balanced, collaborative society that focuses less on consumption and material wealth and more on helping people and communities thrive.
"We urgently need a change in priorities. So if you believe in a more caring society that puts well-being before wealth, and prioritises the things that really matter, then join us - add your voice and take action. Together we can create a happier and kinder world".
