Pharrell Williams is partnering with the United Nations Foundation to celebrate this year’s International Day of Happiness.

The Grammy Award winner’s song “Happy” will be this year’s anthem, encouraging “people to take action to support the UN and to create a happier world for people everywhere,” according to the UN Foundation’s website.

You can join the celebration from anywhere in the world by submitting photos or videos of yourself dancing, singing or just being happy with the hashtag #HAPPYDAY to Williams’ website:

The singer will share the best submissions on March 20 at noon in each time zone.

“Happy,” which was featured in 2013’s Despicable Me 2, was nominated for an Academy Award. Williams performed at the awards show but lost the Oscar to Frozen‘s “Let It Go.”

Williams’ new album Girl has reached No. 1 in more than 75 countries, and “Happy,” which is featured on the album, has topped the iTunes chart in more than 90 countries.

Let us know how you will be celebrating the International Day of Happiness.
