Did you know about the United Nations Resolution 65/309, placing “happiness” on the global agenda? 
“Conscious that the pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human goal” and “recognizing that the gross domestic product [...] does not adequately reflect the happiness and well-being of people,”U.N. Resolution 65/309 establishes Gross National Happiness (G.N.H.) as an alternate model to Gross National Product (G.N.P.) as a measure of national progress.       
This initiative, supported by The King of Bouthan, the Prince of Wales,the Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, the economist Jeffrey Sachs, is intended as a "landmark step towards adoption of a new global sustainability-based economic paradigm for human happiness and well-being of all life forms to replace the current dysfunctional system that is based on the unsustainable premise of limitless growth on a finite planet”.
