World's Biggest Eye Contact Experiment

September 23rd, 2017 is the weekend of the International Day of Peace as declared by the United Nations. In the blink of an eye the world will change. More than 30,000 people will flashmob together in more than 400 cities around the world to rebuild our sense of human connection by inviting strangers to share a minute of heart-felt eye contact in public. This global event has gone viral with over 65 countries on board so far. 

The Liberators International, social movement behind this experience believe it is deeply important to involve citizens in participatory acts of human connection that allow us to unite as one global family. When interviewed, Peter Sharp, the founder said “With the rise of political and environmental uncertainty, a global sense of separation and isolation has caused a disruption to society's cohesion on this planet. Sharing eye contact is something everyone with has the ability to do and when we do it a natural sense of connection naturally arises. When we feel connected to each other, we feel more peaceful, more open to letting love into our lives and less alone. Sharing one minute of eye contact enables all of this to flow without the need for even speaking the same language.

We will create a safe space where people who want to participate are invited to share a minute of eye contact with a friend or a stranger in silence, and realize the power of human connection.

The event is free to the public and open to all who would like to connect with others.
