The history behind International Day of Happiness


The first International Day of Happiness was held on 20 March, 2013. It was inspired by Jayme Illien, a United Nations adviser. Jayme grew up in one of Mother Theresa’s Kolkata orphanages and then adopted by an American family. His passion and mission was to end global inequality.

Singer-songwriter, Pharrell Williams, has been heavily involved with International Day of Happiness as a spokesperson, and composed the worldwide hit Happy. Other celebrities who have supported this amazing day include Chelsea Clinton, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, and Ndaba Mandela, the grandson of Nelson Mandela.

Many events have taken place across the world as part of International Day of Happiness, such as dances, drop-ins and conferences.

International Day of Happiness aims to reduce global inequality, end poverty and protect the planet for future generations.
