About us

Want to know the latest secrets of Finnish Happiness? You are in the right place! We are thrilled about networking with people who share our interest in happiness and want to know more about it.

The Finnish Happiness Institute is an independent Think Tank promoting science based happiness and flourishing in all aspects of life. To us happiness is extremely important! Happy people build a genuinely happy world around them. Our particular focus is on Happiness in Finland as Finland has been chosen the happiest place to live in for several year in a row. We share the good news of Finnish happiness with the world around us by creating science based courses, webinars and online events together with other happiness enthusiasts.


We are so excited and proud of our country Finland as it has been chosen as the happiest country in the world in the annual World Happiness Report for the sixth year in a row . We are definitely doing something right! You might wonder, why we have so many pictures of nature on our site. We know from earlier research that Finns love of the outdoors and nature in its many forms may indeed play a crucial role in Finnish happiness. Naturally family and friends, as well as deep sense of trust in each other and in the society at large plays a big role too.

We are on a mission to find out what Finnish happiness is really about and our first mission is to understand Finnish happiness better through existing research, and through our own research efforts. For example currently we are studying Finnish CEO´s and their experience of happiness to see what role happiness plays in business success. Secondly we want to spread the good news and help as many people, organizations and businesses as we possibly can to flourish and thrive with us.

We are ready to ask crazy questions as naive experts and to find new solutions to pressing problems and promote out-of-the-box consepts to create wellness and happiness where ever we go. Feel free to join our mission! Together, we can create a difference.
