The Museum of Peace - MAMT organized the "World Happiness Day" on the multimedia platform.
Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated International Happiness Day on March 20 because happiness and well-being are two universal aspirations worldwide and it is important to take them into account in the public action program. Since then, the United Nations has adopted a new agenda for sustainable development, articulated on 17 sustainable development goals, as well as a global agreement on climate change.
On the occasion of International Happiness Day, the United Nations invites the Member States, international and regional organizations, as well as civil society and the general public to celebrate this day by organizing educational activities and awareness-raising campaigns.

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed International Happiness Day on March 20 in Resolution A / RES / 66/281 of July 12, 2012. The Organization therefore recognizes that happiness and well-being should be taken into account in political objectives. It also recognizes the need to adopt economic growth in a broader, more equitable and balanced way which promotes sustainable development, the elimination of poverty and the happiness and well-being of all peoples.
This resolution is the result of an initiative by Bhutan, a country that has favored the Gross National Happiness Index over that of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) since the 1970s. It was also on the initiative of the government of Bhutan that senior officials and representatives of religious organizations, universities and civil society met in 2012 at the United Nations headquarters to discuss new ways of measuring well-being and happiness by going beyond a purely paradigm. cheap.
