Prof. dr. Morten Kringelbach
We were so excited to have Prof. dr. Morten Kringelbach (University of Oxford, Aarhus University) join us for our Green Light Symposium and Party. His interdisciplinary work has focused on understanding and promoting human thriving and was beautifully summarized in his contribution: ''Searching for the constellation of brain regions needed for meaning making and thriving''. The central hypothesis is being pursued that human flourishing is orchestrated by a necessary and sufficient but unstable constellation of brain regions and networks at the top of the brain hierarchy.
Morten shared insights and ideas surrounding these five key areas - it was a beautiful display of research with inspiring moments and fun interactive pieces.

Looking Forward - Future of UMH - Breakout sessions
One of our favorite moments from the symposium was a chance to discuss the future ideas and plans. We broke into three groups and used the time for exchanges of ideas, collaborations, challenges and discussion on each of these topics. Below is shown a glimpse of the topics that were taken up in each group.
Special Thanks to our UMH board!
We would like to take a quick moment to also thank our board for their support and guidance during the continuation process. We apperciate the insight, persistance and attendance in all the steps we've taken along the way but also for what is to come!
