International Day of Happiness
Did you know that March 20 is the International Day of Happiness? No? Well, what are you waiting for? Let’s celebrate!!!

This year’s theme is “Happier Together”, focusing on what we have in common, rather than what divides us.

Everyone wants to be happy - and life is happier when we're together. So let's celebrate our common humanity.

But, how and when did this begin?

In 2011, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which recognized happiness and well-being as “fundamental human goals” and called for “a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes the happiness and well-being of all peoples”. The resolution was initiated by Bhutan, a country which recognized the value of
national happiness over national income.  

One year later, in 2012, the first-ever UN conference on Happiness took place and the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which decreed that the International Day of Happiness would be observed every year on 20 March. It was celebrated for the first time in 2013.

In 2015, the UN launched the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that seek to end poverty, reduce inequality, and protect our planet – three key aspects that lead to well-being and happiness.

All 193 United Nations member states have adopted a resolution calling for happiness to be given greater priority. The United Nations invites each person of any age, plus every
classroom, business and government to join in celebration of the International Day of Happiness.

So….let’s join in and celebrate by being happy, not only on March 20, but all year round!
