Free Sustainable Happiness course for Support Staff & Professionals

Support staff and professionals have the amazing opportunity to use work time to attend and actively participate in Dawson’s Sustainable Happiness non-credit course. The Sustainable Happiness course is free and will guide people to reflect on positive psychology and sustainability. It contributes to Dawson’s commitment of well-being for all, sustainably.

What is Sustainable Happiness?

“Happiness that contributes to individual, community or global well-being and does not exploit other people, the environment, or future generations.”  -Dr. Catherine O’Brien

The Office of Sustainability and Human Resources will offer 24-hour Sustainable Happiness (SH) Certificates to support staff and professional employees during the Winter 2024 term. The weekly sessions are developed with a goal of reconnecting people, community, and Nature.

Participants in the certificate are introduced to the concept of Sustainable Happiness and explore its implications, both personally and professionally. This is an experiential and applied peer-to-peer training. All participants must complete a project that benefits the well-being of themselves, others and/or the environment to obtain the certificate.

These sessions are led by employees who have completed the Sustainable Happiness Facilitator Training Program.
