Volunteering at WCPP

On behalf of the International Positive Psychology Association organising committee we would like to thank all the volunteers for helping to make the 6th World Congress on Positive Psychology a wonderful experience for all!

The theme of 6th World Congress on Positive Psychology is “Nexus”- meaning connection. The congress will build connections, collaborations and pathways that can help us work together to enhance human flourishing. Volunteering at WCPP 2019 will allow you to connect and network with a range of different people; peers, organizers and delegates. In order to make this congress a success, we will need your support with a variety of tasks including monitoring sessions, assisting with wayfinding, helping in the exhibition hall, escorting Plenary speakers and Key Note Speakers from the speaker room to the stage; ensuring podium session and other sessions run in a timely manner and much more.
