On the occasion of Happiness Day, next Friday 20 March, 2BHappy Agency organizes the virtual Happiness Marathon.
In a dramatic moment like the one we are experiencing due to the corona virus, “there is a need to make our positivity feel, to bring light where there is fear, uncertainty, stress, sense of loneliness, perception of powerlessness”.
To follow the 780 minutes No Stop of the Happiness Marathon live and free (in Italian), just click this link: from 7am to 8pm, at your preferred times.
What is the International Day of Happiness?
The General Assembly of the United Nations in its resolution 66/281 of 12 July 2012 proclaimed 20 March the International Day of Happiness, recognizing the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives. It also recognized the need for a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes sustainable development, poverty eradication, happiness and the well-being of all peoples.
This year’s theme is – paradoxically- Happier Together, focusing on what we have in common, rather than what divides us.
