When is Sky Day?
Sky Day is celebrated worldwide on September 20. That’s when most people will be taking part.
But if another day works better for you, go for it! Every day is a sky day.
What do we do on Sky Day?
The idea is to promote a greater understanding of our amazing sky. Experience it together. Observe how beautiful and dynamic it is. Make art about it. Measure it in some way. Talk about the science of how it functions and what its vulnerabilities. And why we should care. How you do these things is up to you! Here are some of our suggestions:
Take part in Sky Day Project!
Sky Day Project is a citizen artwork in which people all over the world use their creativity to show they care about our magnificent sky and want to come together across cultures and borders to protect it for the benefit of all. So Join in!. Sky Day Project is exhibited at art museums, schools, planetariums and botanical gardens all over the world. We’ve even installed Sky Day Project on the International Space Station!
Organize a Sustainability Fair!
Calling all community leaders! Sky Days and Sky Day weekends are excellent times to hold a beautiful event. Organize a sustainability fair! Bring your community together to talk about the importance climate and sky. And make sure to invite your local artists to take part. It’s time to come together.
Write a sky-ku!
While a poem cannot scrub away the pollution in our atmosphere no-one should underestimate the power of ideas. Sky-ku are inspired by haiku and are a beautiful way to express your thoughts and feelings about our amazing shared sky. Do you Sky-ku? Find out! Learn more
Take a hike!
Sometimes the simplest things mean the most so maybe all you need do is assemble friends and family and go for a walk together. Notice how every day is a unique symphony of light and atmosphere unfolding right above our heads. Take a moment to re-connect to our amazing sky and reflect together on how much we all rely on it functioning naturally every day. From every conceivable point of view it is amazingly unlikely we are here, together, able to share such experiences on a stunning planet we call home. Shouldn’t we do whatever it takes to make sure future generations thrive under our one, shared sky just as so many of us do today?
