Corporate Well-Being Center, has been established on March 20th, the International Day of Happiness.*

The Center's aim is to enable happiness and wellbeing flourish in the corporate life. With this aim, it promotes the science and practice of wellbeing in corporations with its activities throughout the year.

We would like to celebrate the International Day of Happiness with a new activity this year together with all the corporations who are willing to take part in!

The International Day of Happiness, celebrated for the first time in 2013, an activity led by Action for Happiness has encouraged people to select their "Happy Heroes", those special people and organizations who go above and beyond to bring happiness to the lives of others, around the world.

As the Corporate Well-Being Center, we would like to repeat a version of this very inspiring activity among corporations this year.

Our aim with this activity is to encourage and enable people in corporations to nominate "those special people who go above and beyond to bring happiness to the lives of others" as their "Happy heroes" and thus enable the organizations celebrate the day in a meaningful way.

We look forward to celebrating the day with your support!

*The General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a resolution on June 28th, 2012, by which it invited Member States to pursue the elaboration of additional measures that better capture the importance of the pursuit of happiness and well-being in development with a view to guiding their public policies. The resolution stated that;

* The pursuit of happiness is a fundamental goal,
* It is important to recognize the importance of happiness and wellbeing as aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and develop public policies around these aspirations;
* There is a 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.

Thus deciding to proclaim March 20th the International Day of Happiness, all Member States, other international and regional organizations, as well as civil society, including non-governmental organizations and individuals, were invited to observe the International Day of Happiness in an appropriate manner, to raise public awareness.
