On the 21st of September 2019, the International Day of Peace, we created a global day of unity and while we are looking forward to the next world edition on the 19th of September 2020, true connection should not be reserved for one day a year. Your city is waiting for you. Become a host or participate at an eye contact experiment nearby and let's demonstrate the power of human connection.
Global event founded (2015-2018) by The Liberators International.
The 2019 and 2020 event are being coordinated by Buddha Theatre.
What happens? On Saturday the 21st of September, 2019, on the International Day of Peace, 1000's of citizens, 100+ cities, 6 continents registered to create a message of unity: ONE world. We created a global message of unity by sharing 1 minute of eye contact with strangers in the heart of our towns worldwide. While you might want to secure the 19th of September 2020 yet, the act of connecting with your community should not be reserved for 1 day a year. Everyone is eagerly searching for true connection. Your city is waiting for you. As a host or by participating in an eye contact experiment you demonstrate the power of human connection in public. What happens will change the social fabric of the present and future. Why? Our global society has become thirsty for true connection and this experience allows you to be the change you wish to see in the world by creating an authentic, loving and respectful platform for human connection to flourish in public. When we feel connected to each other, we feel more peaceful, more open and less alone. Sharing one minute of eye contact enables all of this to flow without the need for even speaking the same language. Hashtag? If you post any photos or related updates online we invite you to join the global wave by adding your hashtag. #shareoneminute, #eyecontactexperiment, #yourcity (#paris for example).
