Bhutan submits the NDP Report to the UN - New Development Paradigm

Bhutan submits the NDP Report to the UN - New Development Paradigm | Nouveaux paradigmes | Scoop.it

As a contribution to the growing global conversation on a transformative post-2015 development agenda, Bhutan has submitted its report titled “Happiness: Towards a New Development Paradigm” to the United Nations.

The report is inspired by Bhutan’s development approach based on the philosophy of Gross National Happiness (GNH) and proposes a New Development Paradigm (NDP) with societal happiness as its guiding vision. Such a holistic view of development has the potential to transform humanity’s relationship with nature, restructure our economies, change our attitudes to food and wealth, and promote caring, altruism, inclusiveness and cooperation.

 

The report marks a milestone in Bhutan’s involvement in the worldwide endeavour to define a new global development agenda. Through the report, Bhutan wishes to contribute to the search for a genuinely different paradigm a process that will require exploration of unorthodox approaches that challenge the fundamentals of the current paradigm in search of a better way to live and flourish on our planet. This new paradigm is envisioned to emerge and evolve through a dynamic process of global conversation, participation and constant feedback.

Respect is the Root of Happiness, Not Money

Respect is the Root of Happiness, Not Money | Nouveaux paradigmes | Scoop.it
Money may make the world go 'round' but respect is what will make you happy. New studies have shown that the respect you've earned is worth more than what is in the bank.

 

Respect is hard earned and for people it's something that is worth more than its weight in gold. Many believe that success, a high paying career or a college degree breeds happiness but that's not necessarily true based on previous studies. . . .

Meaning Is Healthier Than Happiness

Meaning Is Healthier Than Happiness | Nouveaux paradigmes | Scoop.it
People who are happy but have little-to-no sense of meaning in their lives have the same gene expression patterns as people who are enduring chronic adversity.

 

Happiness may not be as good for the body as researchers thought. It might even be bad. People who are happy but have little to no sense of meaning in their lives — proverbially, simply here for the party — have the same gene expression patterns as people who are responding to and enduring chronic adversity. That is, the bodies of these happy people are preparing them for bacterial threats by activating the pro-inflammatory response. Chronic inflammation is, of course, associated with major illnesses like heart disease and various cancers.

 

It’s important to understand that for many people, a sense of meaning and happiness in life overlap; many people score jointly high (or jointly low) on the happiness and meaning measures in the study. But for many others, there is a dissonance — they feel that they are low on happiness and high on meaning or that their lives are very high in happiness, but low in meaning. This last group, which has the gene expression pattern associated with adversity, formed a whopping 75 percent of study participants. Only one quarter of the study participants had what the researchers call “eudaimonic predominance” — that is, their sense of meaning outpaced their feelings of happiness.

The Mathematics of Happiness?

The Mathematics of Happiness? | Nouveaux paradigmes | Scoop.it

In Emotional Equations, Chip Conley creates a simple formulas like anxiety = uncertainty x powerlessness, which, when used systematically, he says, can give individuals and organizations a concrete method for addressing the human needs that drive them.
