“On this first International Day of Happiness, let us reinforce our commitment to inclusive and sustainable human development and renew our pledge to help others. When we contribute to the common good, we ourselves are enriched. Compassion promotes happiness and will help build the future we want.”
~ Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Message for the UN International Day of Happiness, 20 March 2013

When the United Nations announced that March 20, 2014 would be the second annual International Day of Happiness, MAPP Alumni president, Lisa Sansom, posed the question to graduates of the University of Pennsylvania MAPP Program, “What can we, as positive psychology practitioners, do on this day to increase the total tonnage of happiness in the world?”

The answer was this virtual online conference highlighting some of the important applications being done around the world by a wide variety of practitioners.
