THE WELLBEING SUMMIT

May 31-June 4, 2022 | Bilbao, Spain

Join us for five days of talks and artistic experiences to deepen our collective understanding of individual and collective wellbeing in the context of social change, and to commit to action.

We’ll bring together people from around the world and from varying disciplines: governmental, business and social impact leaders, philanthropists, artists, and activists.

Art, at the heart of the event, will be used as a universal language and a tool to create the transformative journey.

We hope that the event, the city of Bilbao and the region of Bizkaia will further inspire us all to build wellbeing into our lives, organizations and communities and commit to a societal shift that is more innovative, human and inclusive.

Participants will attend largely by invitation to ensure that we are bringing together a diverse, representative and pluralistic community of attendees. If you would like to apply to participate, please tell us more about you by indicating your interest below.
