Happy Happy Joy Joy — The Social Business Festival

31.07.15., Rīga, A. Briāna iela 9

The Happy Happy Joy Joy Festival will focus on how to fight social problems in a joyful, creative and economically sustainable way. World renowned experts from the field of social business, designers, business leaders and entrepreneurs will share their strategies and tools on how to tackle the major challenges of the 21st century and how to stimulate creativity to solve social problems.

Every sense has the power to influence how we perceive the world. If we use all five of our senses we can stimulate our minds to cultivate and expand our creativity.
