International Day of Happiness

United Nations Resolution

Happiness is and should be a global priority. In 2012, The United Nations adopted a resolution calling for happiness to be given greater precedence in everyday life. March 20th has been declared the International Day of Happiness, intended to inspire action for a happier and more fulfilled world. This Day was inspired by Bhutan, a country whose citizens are considered to be some of the happiest in the world.
