A profound shift in attitudes is underway all over the world. People are now recognizing that ‘progress’ should be about increasing human happiness and wellbeing, not just growing the economy.

March 20 has been established as the annual International Day of Happiness and all 193 United Nations member states have adopted a resolution calling for happiness to be given greater priority.

Many tens of thousands of people shared images and the social reach was estimated to be over 13 million people globally.

For the International Day of Happiness 2015 we’re inviting everyone to focus on their connections with others and make new connections.
