On Saturday the 23rd of September, 2017 during the UN International Week of Peace, every country in the world will stand united in eye contact. This page will explain all you need to know.
We will share 1 minutes eye contact with a stranger in the heart of our cities and towns worldwide. Your participation in this global event demonstrates the power of human connection in public. You will be representing your country on this incredible day and what happens will forever change the social fabric of the present and future.
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.
The global event happens on Saturday the 23rd of September 2017. Some of your events will be held on dates close to the 23rd, that's totally ok! It's the action that's most important.
If you post any photos or related updates online it's important you join the global wave by adding your hashtag. #share1minute, #weekofpeace #Eyecontact, #yourcity (#paris for example).
