I am happy to wish you a truly wonderful, International Happiness Day!

March 1, 2024

What is the International Day of Happiness taking place on March 20, 2024?

It’s a day to be happy, of course! Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated the International Day of Happiness as a way to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world.

Happiness is a fundamental human goal. The United Nations General Assembly recognizes this goal and calls for “a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes the happiness and well-being of all peoples.”

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

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.
