Introducing Worldwide WePark Week

The original round of WePark was a huge success! Events on three continents, nearly 10 cities and dozens of news articles.

This time we are going even bigger!

Get ready for Worldwide WePark Week from June 24-30!

That means more WeParks, more cities, and more people rethinking how we use our public space.

Here are our goals for the week:

  • 5+ continents

  • 20+ cities

  • 100+ participants

  • Coverage in every media outlet

  • One step towards safer, healthier, better cities

FAQs

Who will be organizing the events?

Well, you!

I (Victor) am writing this email. And WePark isn’t really an organization. So I need the help of organizers around the world, like you, to plan and publicize events.

How long will each events be?

You decide! We recommend at least 2 hours. You do not need to throw an event all week long, just pick a day and time that works for you.

Is it difficult to throw a WePark event?

No, and it’s also cheap! All it involves is taking a table and chair to a parking spot. Then take some photos and submit them.

We encourage you to plan the event in advance and invite your community to participate. But if you want to go rogue and do it on your own, that’s on you!

International WePark Day and Founding Team

International WePark Day

WePark started 10 days ago and since we've seen 5+ WePark events, 100+ people joining our email list and Slack group, and articles covering WePark around the world.

There's a fork in front of us. Either, WePark’s 15 minutes of fame ends as a fun experiment or WePark becomes a sustainable movement that improves cities around the world.

WePark resonates with people who see a future with better cities. The events we throw now will establish WePark as a sustainable movement for years to come.

To keep the ball rolling, we are planning an International WePark day where we will have WePark events all over the world. We've already hit 5+ cities and 2 continents, so our goals are:

  • 1 day

  • 3+ continents

  • 10+ cities

  • 100+ participants

  • Coverage in every big publication

The International WePark day will be at the end of May / beginning of June.
