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!
You may have already heard that we have our own happiness researcher, Professor Markku Ojanen. Happiness Professor Ojanen has been researching happiness for several decades and has published numerous books on the subject. He guides the City of Vaasa and its residents along the path to happiness, among other things by sharing tips published on this page. At the end of January, Markku Ojanen gave a happiness lecture to Vaasa residents, the video recording of which you can find using the link on this page.
The video language of the happiness lecture is Finnish. It will later be subtitled into Finnish and Swedish.
Our lunch is packed and the journey towards a happier tomorrow is about to begin.
