In 2021, the IPPA Board of Directors, along with division leadership and various committees launched new conference programs to share the benefits and the values of the science and practices of positive psychology with more people, all around the world.

One of these new conference programs is the IPPA Idea Starter Symposium.  Taking place virtually on the 29th and 30th of October, 2021, the event provides a platform to have many conversations with leading researchers and scientists and with so many practitioners in the field of positive psychology — generating discussion and sparking new ideas.


Join us for an interactive two-day virtual conference that will give you a chance to have an intimate conversation with thought leaders in the field.  You can expect examination of the research and strategies used by thousands worldwide, participate in networking and event information exchanges, ask questions in Q&A sessions, and debate the hot topics.

Hear from speakers and a host of panelists from around the world like Barbara Fredrickson, Martin Seligman, Robert Biswas-Diener, Meg Warren, Lara Aknin, James Pawelski, Roy Baumeister, Noof Aljneibi, Ryan Niemiec, Louisa Jewell, Judith Moskowitz, Eric Kim, and many more.
