The latest issue of Works That Work is a very special one, because rather than travelling the world to find examples of ‘unexpected creativity’, they’ve opted to focus on just one place. Earlier this year the team travelled to Bhutan to report from the mountain kingdom that famously makes Gross National Happiness an integral part of its philosophy.

This seems to me like a match made in heaven: the magazine that specialises in looking beneath the surface and communicating unconventional solutions to everyday problems, reporting on a country that takes the most unconventional approach to meeting its citizens’ needs. And the issue doesn’t disappoint – I was totally fascinated by the stories, which are presented with the sort of empathy and insight we’ve come to expect from Peter Bil’ak and his team.

Take a look at the video below to see the magazine for yourself, and if it piques your interest you might like to also pre-order a copy of the film made by Works That Work, based on their mountain adventure. Check the trailer on Kickstarter to see whether it’s up your street…
