The Good Times – A newspaper project by The Church of London Creative Agency.

We are The Church of London, an independent creative agency and publishing company with offices in East London.

We created a one-off newspaper called The Good Times, which we freely distributed around London on Monday January 16, supposedly the most depressing day of the year. With our own ideas, and others sourced globally through our social media channels, we’re sought out the people and organisations who are giving us reasons to be cheerful about the troubled times we live in.

We freely distributed The Good Times around London on Monday January 16, supposedly the most depressing day of the year. With help from @vizzee and@ruthcarruthers we also had newspapers distributed in Leeds and Glasgow.

What makes you happy? What is your happiest memory? What is your favorite joke? What is your level of happiness between 1 and 10? If you could make one wish, what would it be?

It’s been reviewed, analyzed and debated: why are Bhutan’s residents at such peace? In 2007, Jonathan Harris conducted an experiment called “Gross National Happiness” to measure Bhutan’s socio-economic prosperity, studying the nation’s focus around the basic tenets of Buddhism.

Jonathan interviewed 117 people of all ages and backgrounds giving each one balloons to inflate, making their wishes and ideas tangible. On the last night, over one hundred “wish balloons” floated in the wind representing a nation’s happiness. Please check out his beautiful experiment, the brilliant stories he has uncovered and the art of living.
