The Happiness Project, a collaboration between ECU and the City of Fremantle, aims to provide ideas for enhancing happiness through human-centred design. Students in Graphic Design and Environmental and Spatial Design courses at Edith Cowan University work to identify and solve design problems and propose innovative ways to inject happiness into the city.

Now in its third year in Fremantle, this exhibition is a showcase of the student’s creative works which explore areas such as health, environmental, economic and social design and which are aimed at advancing Fremantle as a happy and sustainable place.

The Happiness Project has also expanded to ZheJiang, China. With the same idea of creatively interpreting happiness through design, ZheJiang Normal University (ZJNU) Creative Culture and Design Studio, will take on the challenge in local communities of ZheJiang. An online exhibition will be held to start the conversation of happiness between Fremantle and ZheJiang.
