International Day of Happiness
What is the International Day of Happiness? It’s a day to be happy, of course! Since 2013, the United Nations has celebrated the International Day of Happiness as a way to recognise the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world. In 2015 the UN launched 17 Sustainable Development Goals that seek to end poverty, reduce inequality, and protect our planet – three key aspects that lead to well-being and happiness.
We are excited to announce that the Smurfs have rallied behind the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for this year's International Day of Happiness!
The United Nations invites each person of any age, plus every classroom, business and government to celebrate the International Day of Happiness using hashtag #SmallSmurfsBigGoals.
I've copied and pasted the info from here..http://www.un.org/en/events/happinessday/
