Join Semafor, in partnership with Gallup, for a first look at the 2024 World Happiness Report. We'll present the brand new survey data and share key insights that will change the ways global leaders across business, tech, politics, and beyond perceive “happiness,” and how to promote wellbeing through our lifetimes. 

This is a convening of wellbeing experts, policy practitioners and thought leaders to discuss the data and how economic development, global affairs, and political attitudes affect national wellbeing to ensure a well-lived life through all its stages.
