Prof. T G Sitharaman, Chairman AICTE, announced the Happiness Rankings and awards. In a conversation with Yogi Kochhar, founder of the YOL-Happiness program approved for adoption as a credit course in higher education, he urged expanding its scope and scale.
The awards, curated by the YOL team under AICTE, invite applications from all higher education colleges in India. Yogi emphasized AICTE’s commitment to address the Prime Minister’s concern about excessive screen time affecting mental health.
To combat this issue, AICTE approved the YOL-YourOneLife app on happiness, which will be released to institutions for student use. Institutions will now be rated on the YOL happiness index, and students can adopt it as a credit-bearing elective, blended, or audit course.
Yogi aims for the widespread adoption of the app to improve India’s world happiness rankings. YOL will be sent to Gallup Inc., who conducts the rankings, urging them to consider this initiative’s impact and overcome optical bias.
YOL, created by Yogesh Kochhar and Harvansh Chawla, addresses social and emotional learning deficiencies by calibrating each student on nine parameters. The app encourages self-engagement, consolidates learning, and widens the spatial and temporal aspects of the mind.Corporate, News
