Zurich, Switzerland Today’s 7 Wonders Day commemorates the Official Declaration of the New 7 Wonders of the World on 07.07.07 in Lisbon, Portugal, after a first-of-kind global democratic poll.
“The world celebrates 7 Wonders Day on 7 July (07.07) every year.” — Bernard Weber, Founder of New7Wonders
The concept of Global Memory and the Canon of 7 were further expanded by the election of the New 7 Wonders of Nature in 2011 and the New 7 Wonders Cities in 2014. In total, more than 600 million votes were cast in the three campaigns.
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!”
Central of this year’s commemoration is the 7 Wonders Day Around The World video, which takes viewers on a World-Wonders tour, from Jeu Island in South Korea to Chichén Itzá in Mexico. As well, a set of posters portraying the Wonders has been made available to download at www.7wondersday.com
