About the Day of Happiness
In 2018, the team of “Kaunas and Kaunas District – the European Capital of Culture 2022” has become the ambassadors of the International Day of Happiness in Lithuania. They are convinced that Kaunas is a city of happy people.
Celebration of happiness all over the world started in 2013. The International Day of Happiness is a celebration initiated by the United Nations, the aim of which is to enhance one of the most important emotions in every person’s life, namely, happiness. Every year on March 20, we will look for it and celebrate its various formats.
However, the team of Kaunas 2022 are not the only creators and authors of the Day of Happiness programme. Every year, we invite the following participants to contribute to the programme of the celebration: museums, libraries, schools, kindergartens, societies, clubs, retirement home, cafés and markets, next door neighbours or the entire house and simply everyone!
With your help, our aim is to develop this day into the happiest festival, which, by 2022 and even more actively afterwards, would be celebrated not only in Lithuania, but the entire Europe as well.
Green is the new happy
Sharing good emotions, being in harmony with the environment and nature is real happiness.
On the International Day of Happiness this year Kaunas 2022 team invites you to take a look at our relationship with nature and the environment. We invite everyone to join in on the Day of Happiness and create a cleaner environment. Cycle or walk to work, exchange plants or clothes with your friends, encourage colleagues to introduce sorting culture in workplace, or maybe just spend more time in nature with your loved ones.
There are many different ways to love nature. That's why every school, kindergarten, library, museum, cafe, business company, neighborhood community are welcome to create a happy Kaunas, greener and sweeter environment.
The environment inspires and brings happiness. All you have to do is to get along.
