UN International Days of Celebration

The United Nations has created a list of International Days to celebrate our World. As a UNESCO Biosphere Region, we like to bring attention and awareness to the global issues we can address at the local level.

 

March 20th is the International Day of Happiness! 

The United Nations International Day of Happiness is a day to be happy! This celebratory day is a way to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world. We believe that human well-being and happiness is directly connected with nature and protecting our planet for generations to come!
