Code your way to happiness: celebrating International Happiness Day with code week

Publication date: March 20, 2023

International Day of Happiness is a day to think about the importance of happiness and well-being in our lives. On March 20 every year, we are encouraged to take stock of our lives and focus on the things that bring us joy and fulfillment. For the EU Code Week community, coding is an activity that brings joy and unleashes creativity, which is why Code Week promotes digital literacy and coding skills among young people and adults across Europe. 

March 20 – International’s Happiness Day

Coding is often seen as a technical skill that requires precision and attention to detail. However, coding can also be a creative outlet that allows us to express ourselves in new and exciting ways. Through coding, we can build apps, websites, games, and other digital projects that showcase our ideas and imagination. Coding offers a sense of achievement and satisfaction that can contribute to our overall happiness and well-being. 

Coding can also be a social activity that brings people together to work on a shared project. Code Week offers opportunities for individuals and groups to connect and collaborate on coding projects, regardless of their skill level or background. By working together on coding projects, we can build relationships, develop new skills, and have fun, all of which contribute to our happiness and sense of fulfillment. 


In addition, coding offers endless opportunities for learning and growth, as there is always something new to discover and explore. EU Code Week provides access to resources and workshops that help individuals develop their coding skills and knowledge. By engaging in continuous learning and growth through coding, we can develop a sense of purpose and direction, which can enhance our overall happiness and well-being. 

Happy Code Week

The International Day of Happiness and Code Week are linked in their goal of promoting happiness, creativity, collaboration, and growth. In the EU Code Week community, whether you are an experienced coder or just starting out, coding offers endless opportunities for self-expression, learning, and community building that can contribute to your happiness, joy and well-being. So, let’s celebrate International Day of Happiness with Code Week and discover the joy and fulfillment that coding can bring to our lives.
