Dubai has started a new campaign to become the Happiest City by 2021. According to the new procedure the people will be asked for a survey where everyone will be asked that whether he or she is happy in Dubai. However, if you are not happy then you will get a call from the Local Police to know the reason for unhappiness. The authorities have claimed that this is in line with the Smart Dubai Process and to ensure that the people living in Dubai are happy. The Local Police would try to solve the problems you are facing and try to make you happy.
The United Nations conducted a Survey of 158 countries to rank them as per the Happiest Country. The United Arab Emirates has ranked 20 among 158 but the intention is to break into the Top 10 and thus Dubai has taken the initiative.
The survey is quite simple and a person will be asked to choose from a frown, smile and unimpressed straight line. This would be the happiness indicator for the people and the authorities will get the impression that whether you are happy or unhappy in dubai. The Police insisted that they would try to extend the hands for all possible help for the unhappy people in their jurisdiction. However, if it is something else, the same request would be forwarded to the concerned authorities. The Police however has said that the Personal Reasons should be excluded from the same.
Dubai, one of the Seven Emirates of UAE already started the happiness indicators in the government offices. Small tablet computers are generally placed next to civil servants where you would be asked to give your feedback.
The Happiness Indicator and the extended help for unhappy people are yet to be implemented but a survey could be expected anytime soon.
