Introduction to Universe Day 2022
Similar to Earth Day events, individuals and organizations all over the planet are encouraged to self-organize their own 14th annual Universe Day 2022 events to forward this year's Universe Day action messages. In true Gen X, Y, and Z openness and style, Universe Day is a no-ownership, no-egos, get-the-message-out-now local and international co-created event. Imitate it, adapt it, improve it. Even "Steal it, if it hastens the spread of its vital message.
For this 14th annual Universe Day celebration, we invite you (and all other universe citizens and planetary evolutioneers) to gather with friends to:
a. Celebrate the birthday of the Universe! First, set aside some time by yourself or with friends to appreciate and celebrate the beauty and wonder of the Universe we live in, and that sustains us and everything else!
b. Next, and if so inclined, consider your rights and responsibilities as universe citizens and planetary evolutioneers.
c. Finally, choose where you can best help enact smart evolutionary solutions to our many considerable global challenges, especially the area of the climate change emergency!
(Please note: Some links on this page will take you back to our old website as we are still working on getting everything over to this new Universe Spirit website.)
Here are some action goals for Universe Day 2022
1.) Honor the Universe and its origin, the Great Mystery. Click here to see the cross-cultural names we have accumulated for the Great Mystery and the Origin of our spectacular Universe.
2.) Act effectively as universe citizens and planetary Evolutioneer. As such, we also have the responsibility to act from a long-term, big-picture universe evolutionary perspective to wisely forward the evolution of all life on our planet for the benefit of humanity, its future, and all other living species. These are critical global responsibilities that transcend our national citizenship.
3.) Seeing every problem one faces as an equal or greater opportunity and possible benefit if wisely met and managed. For example, the world's number 1 problem is rapidly accelerating climate change and global warming, threatening the extinction of humanity.
This is one essential, life-critical area where we must act together and be effective trans-national planetary evolutioneers and universe citizens. (Click here to discover the ten most important and shocking facts about the state of climate change today.)
5.) Do what you can to radically reduce your atmospheric fossil fuel carbon emissions on an emergency basis! (Our currently escalating climate change results from the human-caused carbon pollution of our atmosphere by fossil fuels.)
For both emergency and non-emergency, actions needed to slow and lessen escalating global warming and plan for and adapt to the coming climate changes, see the Job One for Humanity Climate and Global Crises Resilience Plan.)
6.) Increase awareness of the consequences of crossing more global warming tipping points. This crossed tipping point issue will eventually lead to the unavoidable extinction of about half of humanity by mid-century. (Click here for detailed information on how this climate nightmare is already unfolding.)
What will you do for the Universe on this 14th annual Universe Day Celebration?
The Universe and its beautiful planet Earth need you to help care for and protect it. You can do this by:
1. Creating a local celebration and event that seeks to engage self, community, planet, and the Universe.
2. Learning more about being a planetary evolutioneer and universe citizen in the great evolutionary adventure.
3. Learning more about the steps of Job One for Humanity emergency and non-emergency climate change actions!
4. "Liking" Universe Day International on Facebook!
Need some ideas, tips, and pointers for creating your own 14th annual Local Universe Day event?
Similar to Earth Day events, individuals and organizations all over the planet are encouraged to host their own Universe Day events to forward the Universe Day message. 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.

What Else You Can Do to Learn More
The foundational idea behind the message of Universe Day is derived in part from the wisdom of Albert Einstein when he said: "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." Of course, one doesn't have to be a scientist, activist, or political analyst to know that the challenges faced on a worldwide scale (the climate change emergency, war, other environmental degradation, the unstable global economy...) all have serious consequences. But rather than merely feeling overwhelmed by these issues, the impetus behind Universe Day is to expand one's perspective on how one thinks about them (as Planetary Evolutioneers and Universe Citizens) and --- shift our lives into better alignment with universe-scaled and Universe evolution-informed solutions.
Universe Day is essentially a challenge to all of us. Tremendous leaps in technology have extended the vision of the naked eye well over a million times. With recent innovations in astronomy and evolutionary science, we've discovered more factual knowledge about the Universe in the last 20 years than in all of human history. With these leaps in our collective vision, we are touched and impacted in our consciousness by the rareness and miracle of what we have here on Earth. In other words: just as the universal informs us at the personal level, so does it transform our planetary perspectives. Can we use these new extensions to our collective eyes, ears, hearts, and souls to examine what this planet and Universe mean to us in the bigger evolutionary context and panorama?
