THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF DOING

HOST YOUR OWN DO DAY!

ABOUT DO DAY

DO Day – the international day of DOing brings together purposeful Doers from around the world on October 18th every year to celebrate DOing and that together we as people can take action on even the toughest issue. No matter whether you are an entrepreneur, an employee, student, or citizen DO Day is about the belief that instead of talking about issues we should do something about them and get others involved. DOers are often alone – DO Day celebrates the fact that they exist in all parts of society and across the world.

We want to show the world that you can bring a group of people together and accomplish something in just one day. DO Day connects and engages passionate DOers who want to solve issues and take action.

THE CHALLENGE

The DO School in partnership with the Plastic Pollution Coalition will bring together a global community on October 18, 2018, to celebrate DOing by co-creating around a grand challenge: Refuse + Reduce Plastic.

8 Million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans each year.

Nearly 2 million single used plastic bags are distributed worldwide every minute and plastic pollution will outweigh ocean fish by 2050, if not sooner.

We hope you will join us for DO Day 2018 – let’s stop talking and start doing.

A GLOBAL CRISIS

This 2018 challenge stems from the fact that we are facing a global crisis if we continue to produce and consume single-use plastics at the rate we are doing today. The earth can not digest it:

tons of plastic end up in our ocean each year

single used plastic bags are distributed worldwide every minute

Plastic pollution will outweigh ocean fish by 2050, if not sooner

LET’S BECOME THE SOLUTION IN DOING. JOIN US.
