Workshop program

Past Workshops

In 2019, soon-to-be members of BeWell met for the first time at Freie Universität to exchange their work and ideas on well-being research across disciplines. The presentations investigated how subjective well-being is related to unemployment, overeducation, age and green self-image amongst others. You can find all information on the presentations in our workshop program of 2019.

The great success of the workshop was reflected in the official founding of the Berlin Network of Research on Well-being in 2020.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our second workshop had to be postponed to 2021 and was organized as a series of weekly online sessions at the beginning of the year. It featured interesting talks on the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on Well-being, the value of household work and the causal effect of emotions on anti-immigration sentiments, amongst others.
