In the fourth week of June in 2020 the 10th European Conference on Positive Psychology (ECPP 2020) will take place in Reykjavik Iceland during the bright night season. The home of the conference is Harpa, Reykjavik´s spectacular conference and concert hall located by the harbour, downtown Reykjavik.

The theme of the conference is “Creating a world we want to live in”.

The conference is a platform to present the latest research and its application within the field of positive psychology. It is a unique opportunity for scholars and practitioners to meet and discuss challenges and opportunities within the field of positive psychology from all over the world.

ECPP 2020 will cover three main aspects of Positive Psychology: Theory and basic research, applied research and practice.

The focus will be on positive society, and how we can apply the science of wellbeing throughout the life course, during the first years, in schools, workplaces and with older people to create a better world. The conference program will include subjects such as happiness, flow, meaning, mindfulness and wellbeing in schools, at work, in media and in policies. We promise you high quality and an inspiring conference.

Finally, yet importantly, the spectacular nature of Iceland will be there to welcome you. Participants will have the opportunity to increase their wellbeing in various ways, like swimming, running or hiking during our bright nights. We are looking very much forward to seeing you in June 2020 in Reykjavik.

The pre-workshops will take place on June 24th.

In order to create health and wellbeing for all, we need to work together between sectors, in line with the UN´s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Therefore, we decided to host the Nordic Public Health Conference and the European Positive Psychology Conference in the same week with one shared day. We hope that this will allow participants to make new connections and develop stronger networks in order to create a world we want to live in.

Participants will have the opportunity to attend both conferences with a special reduced fee. There are many opportunities in joining forces with Public Health and building a stronger link between those fields. The shared aim is to increase wellbeing and quality of life, based on the science of wellbeing.

The deadline for abstract submission is November 30th. We encourage people with various backgrounds within the field of positive psychology to send in abstracts.

Registration will open 1 December 2019.
