About GHO

Global Happiness Organization (GHO) is a scientifically-based, nonprofit organization that aims to promote happiness and reduce suffering worldwide.

Overall, world population has become increasingly happier the past few decades and this illustrates that greater happiness is possible. Still happiness did not rise everywhere and most countries are far from the level of happiness currently realized in Denmark. What is more, even in happy countries we see high rates of depression and other mental disorders, especially among young people.

Unfortunately, suffering is not just part of the human population. Today we expose more non-human animals to more suffering than we have ever done before. Exploitation of non-human animals permeates our entire society; notably the food industry, the cosmetics industry, and the fur industry. We also threaten the well-being of future generations by our climate-changing CO2 emissions and the construction of new weapons technologies.

GHO aims at greater happiness not only for humans, but also for our fellow beings. The focus is not only on the present, but also on conditions for happiness in future generations. With the help of you, and people like you, we can really make a difference!
