Zurich, Switzerland: On 7 July (07.07) this year, and every year from now on, the world will celebrate 7 Wonders Day. The event honours the 21 iconic wonders chosen by hundreds of millions of votes following three historic global campaigns: the New7Wonders of the World, the New7Wonders of Nature and the New7Wonders Cities.
New7Wonders Founder Bernard Weber says: “Anyone can get involved in 7 Wonders Day. Everyone can play a role in safeguarding our heritage by being active and contributing to the success of 7 Wonders Day. Every social media post, share or tweet raises the profile of our elected Wonders in people’s minds and hearts, in the world’s media and on the global development agenda. Let’s support one another on 7 July: A day to wonder!”
7Wonders Day will recur every year on 7 July (07.07) and the goal of the initiative is to inspire, to wonder and to celebrate the elected Wonders while raising the profile of Global Memory in a positive and motivating way. Coordinated by the New7Wonders Foundation, 7Wonders Day is led by the slogan “A day to wonder!” 7Wonders Day explores how everyone — as a group or as individuals — can play a part in celebrating our heritage and reflecting on what people can do to ensure that this remains a wonderful world.
