We live in a world where we're FLOODED with depressing and scary news- it seems like we can't escape from it all, whether it be on TV, on our phones, etc. What a lot of people don't realize is there are soooo many great things happening in the world too- the world isn't as dreary and negative as the media sometimes paints it out to be, and actually things seem to be looking up for us human beings on this beautiful rock we live on.

We found an article from the founder of The Happy Broadcast that gives 50 amazing good news events that have happened all throughout the world, and I'm going to give you the top 10 that made me squeal in delight (or if you listen to the Mike and Woo Woo morning show, that dolphin noise I always make when I'm excited).

 

1. The sea turtles' population is increasing by 980% thanks to the Endangered Species Act and the reduction in plastic usage.

2. Iceland became the 1st country in the world to legally enforce equal pay for women and men.

3. A robot called LarvalBot is delivering coral babies to the Great Barrier Reef to help restore coral reefs to what they were.

4. Sweden premiered the world's first mental health ambulance.

5. The world is literally a greener place than it was 20 years ago NASA found, and is 5% greener when observed from space.

6.  The UK has reduced its carbon emissions for the 6th year in a row. The last time they were this low was in 1888.

7. Taiwan's parliament passed a historic same-sex marriage law, making it the first in Asia to do so.

8. A man in India planted a tree every day for 35 years, which created a forest larger than Central Park.
