International Day of Slowness
Every year on June 21, the world celebrates an unofficial and informal holiday – International Slow or Leisure Day. The event was started by a public figure named Clemence Boucher in 2001.
The purpose of International Leisure Day
International Day of Leisure aims to draw humanity’s attention to the philosophy of slow movement; emphasizing the importance of implementing so-called slow days in order to really take a break from the modern frenetic rhythm of life and simply enjoy life.
