The objective of the World Happiness Awards is to recognize individuals and communities realizing a world with freedom, consciousness, and happiness, for all.
There are 12 categories and each of them recognizes both individuals and communities.
Anyone from anywhere can nominate an individual or community. To be nominated at least one nomination form has to be submitted on the World Happiness Awards website. The nominees will have recognition by the World Happiness Fest, highlighting and showcasing the individual or community on the World Happiness Awards website and the World Happiness Fest communications channels.
There will be a special recognition to those nominated individuals and communities that have a higher number of “I love it” or “votes” and comments on the World Happiness Awards website. Special recognition will be granted to individuals and communities that showcase “broad and/or deep outreach” and “positive impact” within the potential boundaries of their communities of influence, i.e. cities, companies, countries, hospitals, schools, etc. And that showcase at the same time the core values of Compassion, Gratitude, Discovery, and Connection embedded in their projects and activities.
Those individuals and communities with a “Special Recognition” will be granted a Scholarship by the World Happiness Fest for all learning fees, to attend ALL events LIVE and ONLINE organized around the world for a 12 months period, including the program organized at the United Nations University for Peace on Gross Global Happiness, they will be granted with a Special Recognition badge and certificate.
The Special Recognition will be granted to all different categories by the board of the World Happiness Fest and the World Happiness Awards “Special Recognition” committee four times per year, on March 20th, June 20th, September 20th and December 20th, every year.
