Co-Existence or No Existence
September 12 Annually
In proclaiming Interdependence Day, we are acknowledging that we are all connected, and that when one thread in the web of life is sundered, all are diminished. Where equity and mutual respect prevail, all benefit. Interdependence Day is a day of celebration, information and action.
In September 2002 We, The World launched Interdependence Day at the Johannesburg World Summit on Sustainable Development at the Sacred Place in Ubuntu Village.
Since the launch, Co-Sponsors' Interdependence Day activities have taken place in Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, India, Budapest, the United States, Canada, England, South Africa, Taiwan and elsewhere. We, The World/Interdependence Day collaborators CivWorld and The Democracy Collaborative produced a special program in Philadelphia which featured a presentation of the Declaration of Interdependence, the premiere of a choral work, greetings from the Mayor of Rome, then UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and former Czech president Vaclav Havel, plus remarks by former Senator Gary Hart, a tribute by distinguished poet Sonia Sanchez.and many other prominent individuals.
Since September 2004 Interdependence Day has become a major part of 11 Days of Global Unity. Interdependence Day is a time for celebration, information and action in recognition of our global interdependence!
