The mission of OneWebDay (OWD) is to create, maintain, advance, and promote a global day to celebrate online life: September 22, 2006.
Why are we celebrating OneWebDay around the world?
Because the web is worth celebrating and protecting. It has changed our lives, and we need to recognize how important its continued health is to us. Because the web is made of machines, we often forget that it’s a social world. The web is us, and so it’s up to us to protect it.
That’s why we’re celebrating in public places (preferably wifi-enabled public places!). We want to make our connection to the web visible, outdoors, something for everyone to notice collectively.
OneWebDay is now on September 22 every year, beginning with the inaugural celebration in 2006. If you’re interested in being part of a project to celebrate the net on OneWebday, go to the ProjectWiki, which is serving as a clearinghouse for projects, helping to match people to ideas (and ideas to people).
If you want to promote OWD or One Web Day, link to them, spread the word about onewebday, grab a button, buy a bumper sticker, donate money or run your own project.
