We celebrate this 3rd International Day of Happiness with a special happiness day thank you to His Excellency Ambassador Lhatu Wangchuk and the Kingdom of Bhutan who made +United Nations  resolution 66/281 the creation of the #InternationalDayOfHappiness   possible and gave it greater significance for the progress of humankind.

In 2011, The Kingdom of Bhutan and Ambassador Wangchuk, led a successful multiyear campaign to adopt UN resolution 65/309 “Happiness: Towards a holistic approach to development” and to initiate the first “High Level Meeting on Happiness and Wellbeing: Defining a New Economic Paradigm”.

It is the Kingdom of Bhutan’s leadership that has resulted in the relatively recent (since 2011) and welcome acceleration of worldwide recognition of "Gross National Happiness" and happiness economics as a superior measure of a country or community's progress than GDP or income alone, at both the national and international level. It is the Kingdom of Bhutan, and Ambassador Lhatu Wangchuk specifically, who I had the unique and unforgettable privilege to observe and learn from, and who initiated and led the way to elevate the subject of happiness to the serious international level that has inspired myself and our own Board and team at Illien Global Public Benefit Corporation to commit the additional efforts at the United Nations to gain full support for the creation of the International Day of Happiness in 2012.

Today we celebrate the recognition of “the pursuit of happiness as a fundamental human goal and universal aspiration of all people", as well as advances in the conversation around happiness and well-being as an economic model and happiness as a public policy objective thanks to leadership and inspiring service of His Excellency Ambassador Lhatu Wangchuk, His Excellency Prime Minister Jigme Thinley, and the Kingdom of Bhutan.

It is the greatest privilege and honor to know his Excellency and to have worked together to create the UN Official International Day of Happiness. Thank you again Ambassador Wangchuk and may your International Day of Happiness be filled with happiness!
