IPPA World Congress

IPPA World Congress

It’s time to celebrate! The 9th IPPA World Congress on Positive Psychology will take place in Brisbane, Australia, July 2-5, 2025. We look forward to seeing all of your faces again, in person in the beautiful and vivacious capital city of Queensland. Coming soon will be information on registration, abstract submission, and more as we move closer to coming together ‘down under’ with one another.

Since the inaugural IPPA World Congress on Positive Psychology (WCPP) first took place in 2009 in the city of Philadelphia, PA, USA, on the grounds of University of Pennsylvania, the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA) has been focused on growing and evolving what has since become a world-leading conference for the field of positive psychology, wellbeing, and beyond.

Now preparing for 9th IPPA World Congress in Brisbane, Australia, the event is a ‘home’ for those in the field and beyond, working to advance the field of positive psychology and wellbeing, and other related areas.

We expect over 1,000 delegates from more than 50 countries to join with us over four days in Brisbane to listen, learn, network, share, connect, and engage in one of hundreds of sessions (plus pre- and post-Congress workshops).

The IPPA World Congress is a place to share (and learn from ) findings, insights, and information, through symposia, panels, poster sessions, galleries, workshops, ignite sessions, keynotes, and roundtable discussions that focus on leading-edge research, as well as applications of the fascinating science across a variety of fields, industries, and areas – from business and workplaces, to education, to medicine and the greater healthcare sector, to the impact on students and wellbeing, and other areas such as belonging, spirituality, and meaning.
