About Future Day

Holidays provide a fantastic way of channeling peoples’ attention and energy.

Most of our holidays are focused on past events or individuals, or on the rhythms of nature. History and nature are wonderful and should be honored — but the amazing future we are building together should be honored as well.

Future Day is a way of focusing and celebrating the energy that more and more people around the world are directing toward creating a radically better future.

This is a brand new holiday — the first Future Day was in 2012. This year on March 1st Future Day will be even better! Let us all work together to continue to make Future Day a great success!

Advancing Future Day

What can you do to advance dialog about the future in your local area?

Even a small dinner and chat with friends will help.
Join the conversation on Future Day March 1st to explore the possibilities about how the future is transforming us. You can celebrate Future Day however you like, the ball is in your court — feel free to send a photo of your Future Day gatherings to info@futureday.org, and your jubilation may wind up being commemorated for the future on the Future Day website and the Facebook page!
For more information on the vision behind Future Day, or to help get the new holiday off the ground, please email info@futureday.org
While Future Day is intended as a general holiday not tied to any specific organization, the initial effort to get the holiday off the ground is being coordinated by Humanity+, a nonprofit organization whose contact information is here.
