In March Finland was chosen once again as the happiest country in the world, but what is the happiest city in the happiest country? We believe that Vaasa has the right to this title.
After all, we already have the Kvarken Archipelago UNESCO world heritage site, a bustling city centre, a super-wide range of leisure options, excellent job opportunities, comprehensive services and, of course, the best residents in the world. So, the foundation is perfect!
But now we also have something completely new: Vaasa’s very own happiness researcher. Professor Markku Ojanen, who has been studying happiness for decades and published numerous books on the subject, will be guiding the city and its residents along the road to happiness in many ways. For example, he will be distributing happiness tips, which can also be found on this page, and organise free happiness lectures for all residents. You can find more information about upcoming events on the Vaasa media channels and on the city’s website.
Our lunch is packed and the journey towards a happier tomorrow is about to begin. Welcome aboard!
