Why Day for Tomorrow? 

People everywhere are experiencing the increased frequency of extreme weather events and variability, but they often do not realize that when disaster strikes, neighbors are crucial. Emergency workers become overwhelmed and unable to reach the injured and knowing your neighbors can facilitate rescue. Joining in community prior to disasters is an important part of preparedness; still individualistic suburban and busy city lifestyles do not promote local communication and many of us do not know our neighbors.    

In addition to promoting isolation, our built environments often force travel by automobile rather than active or public transportation with a lack of sidewalks making active travel unsafe. Coupled with our fast-paced, financially driven schedules, these factors have contributed to increased stress. decreased walking, physical activity and appreciation for nature along with a decline in mental and physical health. Our built environment also forces the use of fossil fuels which cause pollution, greenhouse gases and climate change and leads to illnesses such as asthma, diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.   

Day for Tomorrow, October 22, is a day for people to connect in community activities to appreciate our neighbors and nature while creating awareness of our need to transition back to a healthy, sustainable, built environment where we are ready to respond to disasters and can conquer climate change.
