International Day of Happiness
On the 20th of March, the UN proclaimed the “International Day of Happiness”, a day to remind ourselves to strife for happiness for everyone around the world
Svitac (Firefly Bosnia) held a workshop for children from the age of 5 to 8 and we sang the song “When you’re Happy” together and asked them what makes them happy.
In a second workshop children from the age of 8 to 13 were also asked what makes them happy and why, and reflected upon what we attempt to avoid in order to be happy. Furthermore, they debated about the importance of mental, physical and emotional health. Central was the question what one can do in order to take care of oneself.
The workshops took place in the facilities of the local youth centre.
