"International Day of Happiness" recognizes well-being as universal goal

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says “happy sounds like” Stevie Wonder’s song “Signed, Sealed and Delivered”.

Happiness for the entire human family is one of the main goals of the United Nations, according to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

The global community is marking the International Day of Happiness on 20 March to recognize the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals in the lives of people worldwide.

The UN recently launched a campaign called "Happy Sounds Like" to create what it is calling the "world's happiest playlist."

People around the world are invited to participate by sharing their favourite tunes at happysoundslike.com, and through #HappySoundsLike on social media.
