An album of little pleasures to share, with ATR
Since 2013, at the UN’s initiative, 20 March has been the International Day of Happiness. All UN Member States, regional and international organisations and representatives of civil society, including businesses, charities and individuals, are invited to celebrate happiness in all its forms. This year, ATR joined in the fun with the participation of its staff.
While happiness and wellbeing are universal aspirations, they are constantly fluctuating by their nature. Because happiness is, above all, a personal journey, an eminently subjective notion that is of course partly related to our economic, geopolitical and societal context, as well as what each of us expects from life.
At ATR, this inspired a simple question – we asked our employees “What is happiness for you?” The response was a mosaic of precious moments, simple pleasures of everyday life, and happy memories of distant lands … We wanted to share some of these snapshots that are so into life, reflecting the spirit of ATR and the issues we hold dear.
The happiness of being together
Everything is better shared … As a twosome, with family, or with friends, whether it’s a getaway to the other side of the world or a simple walk in the park or afternoon at the beach, happiness is to be found in every occasion. Moments in life that may appear banal and insignificant on the outside have been given pride of place in our album of Little Pleasures.
