The International Society for Quality-of-Life Studies (ISQOLS) is holding its 18th Conference in the city of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The ISQOLS 2020 Conference will offer a forum for discussion of the research findings concerning quality of life, well-being, and happiness.
The theme of ISQOLS 2020 is Towards a People-First Economy: A World to Win. When we would like to truly improve quality-of-life, we need an economy that does not put shareholders above all stakeholders. Instead we need an economy in which economic growth is not seen as the ultimate goals but as a means to achieve a greater happiness for a greater number of people and in which the purpose of a company shifts from profit maximization to benefit of all stakeholders, also including employees, customers and communities.
