International Day of Happiness

In 2012, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 20th March the International Day of Happiness. In doing so, it recognized “the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives.”

The index

The Global AgeWatch Index ranks countries according to the four parameters it has identified as being key to providing for the well-being of its older citizens; namely, income, personal health, capability and an enabling environment.
