International Day of Happiness
The International Day of Happiness is celebrated annually on March 20th. Established by the United Nations, this day recognises the importance of happiness and well-being as universal goals for people around the world. The day highlights the significance of happiness in promoting peace, inclusivity, and sustainable development.
Each year, the International Day of Happiness is centred around a specific theme, and various events, activities, and campaigns take place globally to inspire positive actions and increase awareness about the importance of well-being. The idea is not only to acknowledge individual happiness but also to emphasise the collective pursuit of happiness as a fundamental human right.
People, communities, and organisations engage in activities ranging from discussions on mental health and happiness to acts of kindness and community service. The International Day of Happiness serves as a reminder of the interconnectedness of well-being and the positive impact that happiness can have on individuals, communities, and the world as a whole.
