Finland, the world’s happiest country for five years running, wants now to share its secret happiness skills with the world. Visit Finland is seeking participants from around the world for an in-person Masterclass of Happiness at the Kuru Resort in the Finnish Lakeland in June.
Finland will be the first country ever to host its own masterclass. The experience will bring together the lucky participants and expert coaches who will guide them towards a balanced way of life that helps you be happy the Finnish way. The coaching covers four key themes: nature and lifestyle, health and balance, design and everyday, and food and well-being.
Happiness is not a mystical state, but a skill that can be learned
Happiness is an infinite resource, but paradoxically it can be hard to grasp at the same time. According to the global Oracle Happiness Report of 2022, 45% of people have not felt true happiness in more than two years and 25% don’t know or have forgotten what it means to feel truly happy.
But research also suggests that happiness grows when it’s shared. Finland, as the home of the world’s happiest people, is therefore keen to help everyone find their “inner Finn”. Those not able to secure a spot at the in-person masterclass need not worry: the Masterclass of Happiness will also be made available as an open online resource in the coming summer.
Applications open until April
The four-day masterclass will be entirely free of charge for the chosen participants. Visit Finland will also cover their travel expenses to and from Finland. Applications for the masterclass are open until 2 April 2023: applicants can apply individually or with a friend or partner.
