Welkom!

The International Society for Quality-of-Life Studies (ISQOLS) is holding its 21st Annual Conference in the city of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The ISQOLS 2023 Conference will offer a forum for discussion of the research findings concerning quality of life, well-being, and happiness.

The theme of ISQOLS 2023 is Towards a People-First Economy and Society: A World to Win. When we would like to truly improve quality-of-life, we need an economy and society that does not put shareholders above all stakeholders. Instead we need an economy and society 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. However, what will it take? Will governments lead us into the next era or will business do so? And finally, can capitalism work for the greater good, transforming the economy into a good and equitable economy, in which everyone can enjoy a good quality of life and feel the benefits of economic growth?

This ISQOLS meeting will be completely in-person. Some of the keynote lectures will be made available online to ISQOLS members. There are plans for a virtual event later in the year for those unable to physically attend. 

Please come and join us in Rotterdam for the ISQOLS Conference!

With best wishes,

Carol Graham, ISQOLS President

Jill Johnson, Executive Director ISQOLS

Martijn Burger , Chair of the Local Organizing Committee and ISQOLS President-Elect
