Click here to see what a Universe Day group in San Francisco did at a previous annual Universe Day. Just like "Earth Day" events, we encourage you to invent your own local awareness celebrations, gatherings, creative partnerships with organizations, educational events, and community events. We dare you to inspire outside-the-box on ways to promote awareness for effectively reducing carbon emissions by using the new universe evolutionary perspective to create a more sustainable planet.
Please send us information about the local Universe Day events that you are creating at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let others know about them.
For peoples, generally, their story of the Universe and the human role within the Universe is their primary source of intelligibility and value. Only through this story of how the Universe came to be in the beginning, and how it came to be as it is, does a person come to appreciate the meaning of life or to derive the psychic energy needed to deal effectively with those crisis moments that occur in the life of the individual and in the life of the society. Such a story communicates the most sacred of mysteries. It not only interprets the past, it also guides and inspires our shaping of the future.

Resolution of an Universe Citizen for Universe Day
Today I rejoice in this corporeal body on the boat body, on this body of water, on this planet body, revolving evolving in this Universe without body
A New Year is beginning!
Let my resolutions connect me to you, to me, to the planet, to the Universe.
Let me transform the judgments that polarize me into discernment's for creative problem solving.
Let me see the uniqueness of my part in the whole as I see yours and let me celebrate that uniqueness as the evolving being it is.
Let me remember that we are all part of the whole. As I honor the part I do so for the whole
Let me sing, let me dance, let me feel, think and create worthy words with the juice that is my humanness.
Let me be the Creative force that mirrors all creativity.
