Meik Wiking has the best job in the world: as the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, he is on a mission to discover what makes people happy. He wrote The Little Book of Hygge to better understand why Denmark consistently comes first in global happiness rankings. Following lots of research and insight, he came to the conclusion that hygge is the magic ingredient.

When he's not studying political science and writing several books and reports on happiness, wellbeing and quality of life, he enjoys photography and playing tennis (quite badly) with friends. We are very proud to announce that he is coming to Groningen to the Let’s Gro festival to tell us all about happiness. Why are some people happier than others and how exactly do you measure happiness? Meik has the answers and he also knows what makes a good life, how to achieve well-being at work and at home.
