Earth United Day

Earth United Day, celebrated on August 21, is a day of social and ecological reimagination, a protest against the hegemony of capital, and a recurrent opportunity to unite the struggles for a sustainable future. Serving as a starting point for radical change, it unites through mutually beneficial practices.

Earth United Day is rooted in the following principles: only a self-reflective society can anticipate and solve ecological crises; only a slow society, that is, one that has a sufficiently slow metabolic interaction with nature, can protect the biological diversity of the Earth; only a society with a critical view on technology can control its use of technology and, more specifically, facilitate the adoption of appropriate technology; only a society that reconnects us with nature is worth struggling for; and only a society that celebrates the virtues of slowness will allow us to remain connected with nature, from birth to death.

Earth United Day is an opportunity to reimagine, to share our experiences, and to start changing our social and ecological relations together.
