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 email@example.com 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.
Our unique attributes evolved over a period of roughly 6 million years. They represent modifications of great ape attributes that are roughly 10 million years old, primate attributes that are roughly 55 million years old, mammalian attributes that are roughly 245 million years old, vertebrate attributes that are roughly 600 million years old, and attributes of nucleated cells that are perhaps 1,500 million years old. If you think it is unnecessary to go that far back in the tree of life to understand our own attributes, consider the humbling fact that we share with nematodes (tiny wormlike creatures) the same gene that controls appetite. At most, our unique attributes are like an addition onto a vast multiroom mansion. It is sheer hubris to think that we can ignore all but the newest room.

This following video is about Universe Day San Francisco promoting their 2nd annual Universe Day event on January 1st, 2011 on a solarized boat.
Universe Day is focused on showing how evolutionary principles can help us work together to meet the tremendous challenges of our times. Similar to Earth Day events, individuals and organizations all over the planet are encouraged to self-organize their own Universe Day events & meet-ups to forward this vision and provoke action. 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.
We hope to inspire others to plan, gather information, share our challenges, & incite calls to action.
Join us on Facebook to help plan the next annual Universe Day on January 1st, 2012. Just like "Earth Day" events, we encourage you to invent your own spectacles, gatherings, creative partnerships with organizations, educational events, community events, online tools. We dare you to inspire outside-the-box on ways to gather and honor universal perspectives and practical footholds on living life, spirit, and sustainable prosperity... and forward this Universe Day message.
