Smiley News: Everyday heroes making the world a happier place

Following on Franklin Loufrani's original news concept and adapting it to the modern world, our platform features Smiley News: a source for all the positive news from around the globe.

In September 2015, the United Nations’ General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Building on the principle of “leaving no one behind,'' the new Agenda emphasises a holistic approach to achieving sustainable development for all.

Smiley News brings you inspiring stories of people and communities working towards attaining these goals.
