Happiness should not be a luxury for a few

In 2012, when the United Nations (UN) General Assembly proclaimed March 20 as the day to celebrate happiness, it did so with a purpose. The UN called for "a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth" because happiness plays an important role in ending poverty, reducing inequality, protecting the planet, promoting inclusivity and growing economically in a sustainable fashion.

In 2015, the UN adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals to replace and build upon the successful Millennium Development Goals.

The SDG mean to address the complex and interrelated challenges facing the world.
