Prime Minister Jigme Thinley on the development philosophy of Gross National Happiness (GNH). On a recent trip to Bhutan to explore faculty and student exchange and program development opportunities, I asked what GNH looks like on the ground. The response I got is local organic agriculture (the official agriculture policy of Bhutan), renewable energy (Bhutan is 100% renewable powered from run-of-river hydro), good governance, strong vibrant communities, micro-enterprise, satisfying, right livelihood, universally available holistic health care, environmental protection, and daily life grounded in deep spirituality rather than excess materialism. I am struck by how close this is to a description of the western Sustainability Movement in general and the Sustainable Living program at Maharishi University of Management in particular. We’re working to develop collaborative programs with institutions in Bhutan to explore these connections both at the Sustainable Living Program campus in Fairfield Iowa and in Bhutan.
