Earth United Day

The Earth United Day, celebrated on August 21, is a day of social and ecological reimagination, an antidote to the hegemony of capital, and a recurrent opportunity to unite the struggles for a sustainable future. The celebration is inspired by the following beliefs: only a self-reflective society can anticipate and solve ecological crises; only a slow society, that is, one that has a sufficiently slow metabolic interaction with nature, can protect the biological and cultural diversity of the Earth; only a society with a critical view on technology can control its use of technology and, more specifically, facilitate the adoption of appropriate technology; only a society that reconnects us with nature is worth struggling for; and only a society that celebrates the virtues of critical reflection will allow us to remain connected with nature, from birth to death.
