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. We will also be posting updates about our local San Francisco Universe day 2013 event in the Facebook window father down this page.
Any animal whatever, endowed with well-marked social instincts . . . would inevitably acquire a moral sense of conscience, as soon as its intellectual powers had become as well, or nearly as well developed, as in man. . . . A moral being is one who is capable of reflecting on his past actions and their motives—of approving of some and disapproving of others, and the fact that man is the one being who certainly deserves this designation, is the greatest of all distinctions between him and the lower animals.
— Edward O. Wilson
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.
