On this 12th Universe Day celebration, we invite you and all other universe citizens and Evolutioneers to gather with friends locally to consider your rights and responsibilities as universe citizens and planetary Evolutioneers and then, choose where to best help to enact wise evolutionary solutions to our biggest global challenges while also celebrating the beauty and wonder of the universe we live in.
Similar to Earth Day events, individuals and organizations all over the planet are encouraged to self-organize their own Universe Day 2020/21 events and meet-ups to forward this year's Universe Day action messages (below.)
In true Millennial and openness style, Universe Day is a no-ownership, no-egos, get-the-message-out-now local and international co-created event. Imitate it, adapt it, improve it. “Steal it, even, if it hastens the spread of its vital message.
Why does Universe Day land on noon December 31st to noon on January 1st?
The New Year’s holiday is a time spent by many to reflect on the previous year, and examine how they want to live in the New Year about to begin. Celebration is also a way to energize important intentions. Mark Twain said, “Never trust your mind when your imagination is out of focus.” Likewise, on Universe Day, how might one shape their New Year’s resolutions when the biggest possible challenge to humanity's future (the emergency and climate destabilization cliff) is also in focus?
Here are some great suggested action goals for Universe Day 2020:
1.) Honor the Universe and its origin, the Great Mystery. Click here to see the most viewed page on this website, the page that contains all of the names we have called the Great Mystery and origin of our amazing universe.
2.) Act more effectively and wisely as universe citizens and planetary Evolutioneers. As such, we have the responsibility to act from a long-term and big-picture universe evolutionary perspective to wisely forward evolution on the planet for the benefit of humanity and its future. There are critical global responsibilities that transcend our national citizenship.
3.) Seeing every problem one faces as an individual, a group, a nation, or as humanity as a whole as an equal or greater opportunity and possible benefit if wisely faced and managed. Right now the world's number 1 problem after the Covid-19 Pandemic and the great global recession is rapidly accelerating global warming threatening a mass extinction of humanity thousands of times worse than all the pandemic deaths that will occur. This is one essential and life-critical area where we must act together and be effective trans-national planetary and universe citizens and as Evolutioneers. (Click here to read about the nine most critical facts about global warming today.)
4.) Radically reducing atmospheric fossil fuel carbon emissions on an emergency basis! This emergency reduction of human-caused carbon emissions is "Job One" for all of humanity. (The current escalating global warming is the result of human-caused carbon pollution of our atmosphere by fossil fuels. For emergency and non-emergency actions to be taken to slow and lessen escalating global warming, see the Job One for Humanity Plan.)
5.) Increasing awareness of the global warming tipping points, which are already making global warming irreversible and will if left unmanaged, lead to the mass extinction of much of humanity by mid-century. (Click here for detailed information on how this is already progressing.) And finally,
6.) Encouraging people everywhere to sign the global warming State of Emergency petition. (Click here for why this emergency petition is needed to deal with the global warming extinction emergency.)

Similar to Earth Day events, individuals and organizations all over the planet are encouraged to host their own Universe Day and meetups to forward the Universe Day message. Universe Day is a no-ownership, no-egos, get-the-message-out now viral event. Imitate it, adapt it, improve it, and even steal it if it means that its message is quickly adopted to build a more sustainable future.

Universe Day San Francisco promoted the 2nd annual Universe Day event on Dec 31, 2010/January 1st, 2011 on a solarized boat in San Francisco. To see blog postings and the video from our SF Universe Day event click here.

The foundational idea behind the message of Universe Day is derived in part from the wisdom of Albert Einstein when he said: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” One doesn’t have to be a scientist, activist, or political analyst to know that the challenges faced on a worldwide scale (the climate cliff and climate destabilization, war, other environmental degradation, the unstable global economy...) have serious consequences. But rather than merely feeling overwhelmed by these issues, the impetus behind Universe Day is to expand one's perspective on how one thinks about them (as planetary Evolutioneers and Universe Citizens,) and --- shift our lives into better alignment with universe-scale, evolution-informed solutions --- new strategies for improvement based on universe-scaled science.
Universe Day is essentially a challenge to all of us. Amazing leaps in technology have extended the vision of the naked eye well over a million times. With recent innovations in astronomy and evolutionary science, we’ve discovered more factual knowledge about the universe in the last 20 years than all of human history. With these leaps in our collective vision, we are touched and impacted in our consciousness by the rareness and miracle of what we have here on Earth. In other words: just as the universal informs the personal, so does it transform our planetary perspectives. Can we use these new extensions to our collective eyes, ears, hearts, and souls to examine what this planet and universe means to us in the bigger evolutionary context and panorama?
