MIAMI, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The World Happiness Summit today announced that lululemon will be Presenting Sponsor for the World Happiness Summit (WoHaSu) in Miami, a first of its kind event focusing on exploring the key elements of wellbeing with the goal of increasing global happiness. Plasticity Labs will be the exclusive technology platform for WoHaSu, extending the summit's reach to hundreds of thousands across the world.
"We are honored to receive this incredible support from two iconic leaders in the Happiness space," said Luis Gallardo, Founder of the World Happiness Summit. "As pioneers on that front, we know that lululemon and Plasticity Labs will help to make WoHaSu even more exciting by inspiring the 10,000 attendees we welcome to Miami. We couldn't be more excited about these two partnerships."
The mindful summit, a unique three-day event aimed at Feeling, Understanding and Acting on the Roots of Happiness, will convene global thought leaders on March 17-19 to explore best practices, policies, challenges and partnerships around increasing happiness in communities around the world. The summit will host the world's leading experts in the science of happiness, as well as activists, philosophers, psychologists and personalities from different disciplines, cultures and generations including Shawn Achor, Ismael Cala, Sonya Lyubomirsky, Enric Corbera, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Michele Gielen, Ruut Veenhoven and many more.
lululemon products create transformational experiences for people to live happy, healthy, fun lives so the partnership with WoHaSu is a natural extension of the company's mission to elevate the world to greatness. This is the first time that the technical athletic apparel company will present an event of this kind. As the Presenting Sponsor, lululemon will provide yoga and meditation programming throughout the event and the brand's ambassadors will join more than 50 lululemon employees from around the world.
"Our participation in the World Happiness Summit represents a wonderful opportunity to touch hundreds of thousands of people with a message of happiness that figures prominently in our culture, our business model, and even in our mission statement," said lululemon CEO, Laurent Potdevin. "We've long defined happiness as the joy created and experienced while living into one's highest, truest self, and we strive every day to support our people and guests with the intention of bringing that happiness to our communities."
"Since Plasticity Labs is on a mission to give 1 Billion people the tools to live a happier, healthier and higher performing life, it made sense to offer our platform to every attendee as a benefit to their WoHaSu pass," said Plasticity's Jim Moss, CEO for the rapidly growing tech company, recently named Canada's Innovators of the Year. The firm's technology currently supports personal and professional development through emotional intelligence and happiness training in the workplace, in schools and in groups. It also employs researchers and scientists to help shape better global policies related to happiness through the analysis of aggregate data. After working with enterprise clients and in schools for several years, the World Happiness Summit will be their first major outreach to individual users.
The summit has the support of the United Nations International Day of Happiness, Art of Living Foundation, Bhutan's Gross National Happiness Center, The University of Miami, Greater Good Science Center at Berkley University, Mindfulness Without Borders, Action for Happiness, The Institute for Global Happiness, GoodThink, Wholebeing Institute, Experience Happiness, among others.
