Sharing the human spirit on International Friendship Day

The World Upshift Movement is emerging from a shared concern for the the many challenges our world faces that undermine peace and divide humanity.

On International Friendship Day 2023, we share the UN's analysis that the root causes of division can be addressed by promoting and defending a shared spirit of human solidarity.

This can take many forms  — the simplest of which is friendship. 

" By accumulating bonds of camaraderie and developing strong ties of trust — we can contribute to the fundamental shifts that are urgently needed to achieve lasting stability, weave a safety net that will protect us all, and generate passion for a better world where all are united for the greater good." 

United Nations statement for International Day of Friendship, 30 July 2023.

Join us in sharing the human spirit on  as we remember and celebrate our own friendships and how the bonds of friendship can help build bridges and spread love across the globe.

These changes come from the heart - they are the changes we are doing our best to catalyse through the work we have embarked on together at the World Upshift Movement.
