11th – Randy Taran, TEDx Talk on Happiness and Sustainability at TEDx Mission

7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Randy is the Founder of Project Happiness and is co-author of the Project Happiness Handbook, an interactive journey that illustrates best practices in promoting social and emotional learning. To explore the question, “What brings lasting happiness?”, Randy produced a documentary film where students from three continents worked together on this quest, interviewing George Lucas, Richard Gere, neuroscientist Richard Davidson, and ultimately, the Dalai Lama. An experiential-learning curriculum grew from the film, integrating current research in Positive Psychology, Neuroscience and Mindfulness. These programs are being used in classrooms and youth programs globally. Randy speaks regularly on various happiness and youth-related issues, and is a regular contributor to the Huffington Post. She also serves on the Board of the Dalai Lama Foundation.

Randy recently joined leaders from around the world for the RIO +20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. The objective of this conference was to secure renewed political commitment for sustainable development, assess progress and implementation gaps in summit outcomes on sustainable development and address new and emerging challenges.
