Call for Submissions for IPPA’s 7th World Congress

Call for Submissions for IPPA’s 7th World Congress


The 7th IPPA World Congress is now accepting submissions!

On behalf of the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA), we are pleased to announce that submissions for the 7th IPPA World Congress are now open
The 2021 World Congress has an important theme: “Wellbeing for All.”  The program is set to run from July 15-18, 2021 in Vancouver, Canada.  To learn more, visit

The theme of “Wellbeing for All” weaves together three threads that are increasingly important as each of us strives to find courageous paths toward healing and a better world.  It means growing beyond the definition of wellbeing, expanding the science of wellbeing and happiness, and building, honing, and using our skills and knowledge to help address the many challenges that we face today as a global community, and that indeed threaten the wellbeing of all of us. To embrace the theme of “Wellbeing for All” and to achieve the purpose of the 7th IPPA World Congress, we need your help and we need your participation!

Submit your proposals to present your theory, research, or practice for consideration to be a part of this exciting program, and have the opportunity to share your findings, excitement, and ideas with the more than 1,600 attendees and delegates anticipated to be in attendance, plus thousands more worldwide - experts in the science, practice and education of positive psychology, wellbeing, and human flourishing. 
Submissions are open to both practice and science fields, and we encourage you to share this with others!
For more information, including full submission guidelines, and to submit your abstract and proposal, please visit the IPPA World Congress website at  There is no requirement to register to attend before you submit (however, if interested, registration to attend is now open as well).
Important Update 

We want to reassure all attendees that we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation globally and will adapt as required to ensure the 7th IPPA World Congress can proceed as scheduled.  Participant health and safety is of the utmost importance to us, so we are ensuring that all precautions are being taken and are prepared to follow the guidelines of WHO and other institutions around the world.
