Human Flourishing and What It Means for the World

Human flourishing is very much about the meaning you can bring to a community and society. Flourishing is about having agency, finding meaning and purpose, and so much more.

Thrive invites voices from many spheres to share their perspectives on our Community platform. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and opinions expressed by Community contributors do not reflect the opinions of Thrive or its employees. More information on our Community guidelines is available here.

In this episode we turn to an array of global luminaries in a broad range of fields such as psychology, technology, education, spirituality, and the arts to get their perspective on what flourishing means and what a flourishing world could look like in specific areas like Education, Gender Equality, Food Security, and Climate Change. In this video created by award-winning journalist @RichardSergay, We hear from a variety of thought leaders including African human rights activist Hafsat Abiola; co-inventor of the Internet Dr. Vint Cerf; founder of The Chopra Foundation Dr. Deepak Chopra; Bishop of Oxford Rt Revd Dr. Steven Croft; President of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, The Honorable Shirley Ann Jackson; AGRA President Dr. Agnes Kalibata; internationally acclaimed musician and advocate of American culture Wynton Marsalis; first woman president of Ireland and chair of The Elders Mary Robinson; Yale University cognitive scientist Professor Laurie Santos; and OECD education leader Andreas Schleicher.
