About Thrive 2020

Do you feel you are thriving, or merely surviving? We are living in an age where healthcare is advanced and our life expectancy is higher than it has ever been, at least in the western world. However, living for longer with access to effective medical treatment does not in itself make for a joyful, meaningful life. Regardless of our age or occupation, we all need to find a purpose and to combat the common problems, such as stress or loneliness, which threaten our ability to enjoy each day.

 

Following on from the two previous groundbreaking Thrive 2020 events, the Dandelion Foundation proudly presented the third instalment: Thrive 2020, From Surviving to Thriving.

 

The event, as always, was designed to impact upon every member of the community in some way. Taking place on Friday 13 October, it covered a full spectrum of thinking and solutions to coincide with the new Guernsey Mental Health and Wellbeing strategy launched earlier this year. It also formed a bold vision that is in line with the Future Guernsey plan to make Guernsey one of the happiest and healthiest countries in the world.
