What is Idealist Day?

Idealist Day is a day of action and possibility and takes place monthly. Individuals take action to make their communities a better place, non-profit organizations create opportunities to connect with interested people, and volunteers, companies, governments, and institutions organize activities to connect with others and take action.

What happened on Idealist Day 2/2?

What happened on Idealist Day, 2/2?

People in more than 200 communities around the world organized local, in person meetings and gatherings on Saturday, 2/2, at 2:00pm. Through these local meetings, we connected in person, started working together, and planned for future Idealist Days. In addition to the local meetings, there were several idealists who used 2/2 as a day of action in their community. Like idealists in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA who took donations to a local charity helping people in need after natural disasters. And another idealist in Athens, Greece, who collected clothes, shoes, and sanitary items to donate to two local organizations supporting refugees. And another group of idealists in Morocco who met to pick up trash at a local beach. These are just a few examples of the actions taken on 2/2.
