International Day of Happiness

To celebrate the International Day of Happiness we asked people what makes them happy. Their answers will bring a smile to your face.

International Day of Happiness

Each year the International Day of Happiness is celebrated worldwide to recognise the importance of happiness in the lives of people across the globe. 

The day, which takes place on 20th March, is an outcome of the UN General Assembly's resolution to recognise happiness as a "fundamental human goal" and is aligned to the UN's 17 Sustainable Goals development. Founded by United Nations special advisor Jayme Illien to inspire, mobilize, and advance the global happiness movement, the International Day of Happiness was initiated by Bhutan, a country which has recognised the value of national happiness over national income since the early 1970s and famously adopted the goal of Gross National Happiness over Gross National Product. 

To celebrate the International Day of Happiness we asked people in London and Sydney what makes them happy - the answers will bring a smile to your face!
