The time has come for concerned citizens all over the world to come together, to take innovative and unified action for a sustainable and healthy future, that is rooted in kindness and compassion for one another, our fellow creatures and our Mother Earth.
Here, in Sri Lanka, progressive officials, movement leaders, public figures and grassroots organisations are all stepping up to help this beautiful island and our diverse population become a world pioneer for this timely and transformational initiative.
7 Days of Rest offers each and all of us the opportunity to engage in healing and collaborative actions towards intercultural harmony and preserving and replenishing the natural beauty and health of our land, biodiversity, waters, air and food.
Next week there will be a press conference with public figures endorsing the event and the following sunday it will appear in the national newspapers. Here's the National Program that we hope you will all feel inspired to support and co-create!
All country-wide events will be launched from the Viharamahadevi Park in Colombo on January 1, 2018 with a ceremony that will be live-streamed around the world.
January 1st - Kindness and Compassion Day
