Join the Movement

Lack of clear goals and low levels of motivation are important causes of student underachievement and drop-outs. Researching effective ways to address these causes through scaling-up goal-setting interventions worldwide means we can help more university and secondary school students to achieve their goals.

  • Our shared purpose is to Increase the level of happiness in the world!
  • Our ambition is for a million people to experience the positive effects of goal setting by 2026.
  • Improve the wellbeing of your students, lower your drop-out rate and improve study results!
