Gross National Happiness — Bhutan’s Innovative Metric for Good Governance

Meg Lowman, currently Chief of Science and Sustainability at the California Academy of Sciences, pioneered the science of canopy ecology.

The leadership of Bhutan recognizes that one way to ensure the future of GNH — along with its unique value system — is prioritizing access to the natural world for all citizens. Green plants and healthy ecosystems are inextricably linked to human health, a vital part of gross national happiness, and are protected in Bhutan’s environmentally conscious constitution. (Of note, a key drawback to America’s GDP is that it does not measure the value of healthy ecosystems, known as natural capital.) Recently, the King of Bhutan launched a program to protect natural areas, especially national parks. Royal Manas National Park will feature an innovative construction called BATS (Bhutan Aerial Trail System) that entails a massive canopy walkway complex that includes a treetop scientific research station. An international team will work together to develop one of the world’s largest canopy walkway systems to jumpstart research on Bhutan’s biodiversity, but also to infuse a big dose of gross happiness into the fabric of Bhutan’s landscape.
