Wellbeing in the workplace must have a sustainable future

The European University for Well-Being is hosting its second annual FestiWell. Under the title “Towards global sustainable well-being”, the nine-day event explores with students, researchers, academic and university staff from EUniWell partner intuitions how to set the course for a sustainable future in which we can support, develop and champion well-being.

EUnIWell is a new European University network of like-minded universities located across Europe to empower cutting-edge research, education and training in the area of well-being. The network unites 255,000 students and 44,000 staff from the Universities of Birmingham, Firenze, Köln, Leiden, Linnaeus, Nantes and Semmelweis with 102 associate partners drawn from seven regions of Europe.

FestiWell is an interactive hybrid event which puts well-being at the centre stage. University of Birmingham colleagues have organised a number of exciting panel discussions.
