Global Solutions Day is an open and spontaneous invitation for solutions-oriented people, organisations, projects, communities, tribes, networks and alliances, to self-organise a local and simple event in the nearest city. The intention for each event is to celebrate and promote all the world's solutions and solutions-oriented collectives - AND to physically demonstrate our shared intention to UNIFY and COLLABORATE!
We gather to celebrate the fact that we already have an abundance of common sense, ingenious, grassroots and scalable ecological solutions, social & technological innovations, alternative political & economic models for us to co-create the most beautiful world we can imagine and embody.
We celebrate our growing understanding and acceptance that we, The People, truly have the power to collectively realise a Cultural Metamorphosis and a whole-systems transformation of human society - when we work together. And the countless "solutions" show us HOW we can do this.
We unite locally and in person to connect with other like-spirited and unity-oriented collectives so we may learn and share with each other - and the general public - about all the amazing people and projects who are pioneering a more beautiful world.
We unite globally to show ourselves and all of humanity how many we are and to publicly invite ONE AND ALL into this peaceful and paradigm-shifting Global Unification.
Global Solutions Day is an unprecedented unified civic action that is already supported (informally) by hundreds of inspiring and unifying collectives from around the world!
We are Calling All Tribes for Global Unity and Collaboration to bring our solutions, tools, practices, new models and visions into the streets and parks so that our "mainstream" people can learn how hundreds of millions of people are creating a more beautiful world.

Gather the Tribes - Connect with and invite different solutions-oriented groups in your area to join forces and inspiration for this co-creative and unifying global event. Click here for a template invitation to send out.
Agree to meet and connect with co-creators beforehand in a park (for example) around the September 21st, Equinox.
On the day, at your chosen location - in the city centre - create an inviting and open "Global Solutions & Inspiration Hub". This space can include the following:
Shiny smiling people!
Inspiring and colourful banners (click here for suggestions) - including the address of this website to refer people to more information and ways to participate.
"Inspiration Boards" outlining the common visions, intentions and practical steps for Global Solutions Day, The Solutions Revolution, The New Earth Directory, The Global Unity Declaration and our "Cultural Metamorphosis". Click here for suggestions.
Promotional materials of participating collectives and like-spirited global and local events
Music & Art
Children's area (all is optional :)
Invite people who are interested to take a photo of the banners - especially with the website - and let them know that they can play an immediate role in promoting and supporting global solutions and global unity by posting the photo(s) in social media - or even using the image as a facebook cover photo!
Film as much as possible. Do short interviews inviting feedback and personal impressions.
Organise a group for the World's Biggest Global Synchronised Peace Meditation in a nearby park for September 24th. After the meditation co-create an open space for discussing (y)our next steps as a regional collective for Global Unity and Solutions Awareness.

Step 1. Pick a busy, but open location in your nearest city, create the event here [link will be on website], and announce it on the Global Solutions Day facebook page. We suggest picking a location near The Eye Contact Experiment, also happening on the 23rd (if there's one happening in your city), so you can promote their deeply aligned and popular event: the solution of human connection.
Step 2. Find, connect and meet with local co-creators. The suggested format is relatively quick and easy to organise so one meeting, even the day before, should be enough.
Step 3. Coordinate banner and inspiration board preparations.
Step 4. Show up, have fun & go with the flow
Step 5. Celebrate!
Step 1. Share the event and this website throughout your networks
