Wellbeing in war: Ukraine insights shared at World Economic Forum

cause and effect

Wellbeing insights from Ukraine fed into the conversation of ‘living with war’ at the World Economic Forum in 2024.

Prof Jan-Emmanuel De Neve, Director of the Wellbeing Research Centre and an Editor of the World Happiness Report, discussed research into the impact of war on the Ukrainian people’s life satisfaction, their feelings of worry, sense of belonging, and more.

He was part of a panel assembled by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, in collaboration with the Office of the President of Ukraine and the PinchukArtCentre, contributing to a programme of events under the title ‘Deciding Your Tomorrow’.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was in the audience to hear Prof De Neve’s remarks on the ‘living with war’ panel, alongside the real-life stories of people experiencing the conflict first-hand.
