About

World Happiness Day is Friday March 20,2020
Join us to watch the World Happiness Festival live from Spain.
The topic is “Technology & the Science of Happiness.”
This is free and open to the public. Feel free to drop in anytime to join us. You can bring a brown bag breakfast/lunch/brunch! There is a fully equipped kitchen available for use adjacent to the community room. Please bring a water bottle, as there is plenty of filtered water and ice.

March 20th was ultimately adopted by the unanimous consensus of all 193 UN member states of the United Nations General Assembly on June 28, 2012:

The General Assembly, ... Conscious that the pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human goal, ... Recognizing also 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, Decides to proclaim 20 March the International Day of Happiness, Invites all Member States, organizations of the United Nations system and other international and regional organizations, as well as civil society, including non-governmental organizations and individuals, to observe the International Day of Happiness in an appropriate manner, including through education and public awareness-raising activities … — United Nations General Assembly, UN resolution 66/281.
