This episode of The Green Interview features Jigme Thinley, the first democratically elected prime minister of Bhutan. While in office the Thinley government was dedicated to Gross National Happiness (GNH), an idea that was born in the early 1970s when Bhutan's fourth king drew international attention by commenting that "gross national happiness" was more important than gross national product. Thinley's tenure as prime minister was characterized by his thoughtful engagement with the modern world-bringing improvements in health and education, while preserving Bhutan's culture and protecting its environment.
