We achieve this by selecting the official #InternationalDayOfHappiness annual theme and announcing the annual tradition: Ten Steps to Global Happiness. And by working to promote and advance:
- Happiness as a fundamental human right and goal for all
- Happiness as a universal aspiration in the lives of all
- Happiness as a way of living, being, and serving communities and society
- Happiness as a north star for individuals, communities, governments, and society.
- Happiness path toward achieving the sustainable development goals
- Happiness as a “new paradigm’ for human development
- Worldwide celebration of the international day of happiness that is democratic, diverse, organic, and inclusive
The United Nations’ International Day of Happiness is March 20th. With our planet experiencing enormous difficulties, it is more critical than ever to prioritise one’s well-being.
When we choose to serve others, we benefit, they benefit, and we establish a positive example of kindness that can spread throughout the world.
Methods of Assistance
Numerous crisis situations are unfolding throughout the world, including in Ukraine, Yemen, and Gaza.
Today, on International Day of Happiness, we are reminded that our actions matter and that each of us, wherever we are, can contribute to the creation of a more compassionate world.
Today, here are three ways to spread happiness:
DISTRIBUTE POSITIVE MESSSAGES
Continue to spread concepts that foster peace, generosity, and understanding, both online and in person.
Connect with others.
Make contact with anyone you know who is experiencing a crisis and provide your care and support.
Contribute to causes on the front lines of a crisis or volunteer to assist with local efforts.
