The cross-cultural conference "Healthier societies fostering healthy organizations: A cross-cultural perspective" is a three-day interdisciplinary event organized by the University of Florence (Italy). The main aim is to share contributions focusing on research, assessment, and interventions that will offer new or innovative perspectives to foster healthy organizations within the public and private sectors. Cross-cultural studies and perspectives will further show-case the applications and implications of current efforts to create positive human ecosystems.

IIASA researcher Anastasia Aldelina Lijadi will present a recent paper entitled "Fundamental differences between life satisfaction and happiness as measurement of subjective wellbeing: World‘s perspective" at this conference. Lijadi joined the World Population (POP) Program as Research Scholar in September 2017. She is part of the team working under a 2017 ERC grant to make an unconventional cross-disciplinary contribution to advancing the discussion around and search for broadly acceptable and empirically measurable quantitative indicators of socioeconomic progress and long-term human well-being that can serve as criteria for judging sustainable development.
