Today, Sunday the 20th of March is the 4th International Day of Happiness!
What is the International Day of Happiness?
It’s a day to recognise the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world and of course to celebrate happiness and to bring happiness into the day of others.
The International Day of Happiness has been founded in June 2012 by the United Nations General Assembly.
This year the happiness Day is focused on Climate Action for a Happy Planet and even some cartoon characters have joined the cause: the Angry Birds.
These animated ambassadors are helping to raise awareness about the importance of climate action for our common future.
The Birds that are Red become happy when we go green, by doing simple things like turning the lights off, using less plastic, recycling etc.
The World Happiness Report
Few day before the celebration of the International Day of Happiness, on the 16th of March, has been released in Rome at the bank of Italy during a conference about Happiness, the fourth World Happiness Report.
What is the World Happiness Report?
It is a landmark survey of the state of global happiness that ranks 156 countries by their happiness levels using survey data from 2013 to 2015.
The report is assembled by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, which is made up of economists, psychologists, and public health experts from around the world.
According to the report, Denmark is the World’s Happiest Country, scoring a happiness rating of 7.526 out of a possible 10 points, followed by Switzerland (7.509), Iceland (7.501) and Norway (7.498).
