Ideas for your Local Event

Acts of Kindness

Charles Darwin gave an enormous gift to humanity through his life and scientific work. Today, people of conscience everywhere can magnify that gift by organizing a group charity day. Engaging in community outreach to improve human well-being is a wonderful way to celebrate science and humanity!

Birthday Party!

Celebrate the birthday of a man whose intellectual bravery, perpetual curiosity, and hunger for truth continues to inspire millions of people all over the world. Everyone likes birthday cake, punch, and other party goodies—and celebrations like this go a long way in fostering a sense of community.

Family Dance Party!

Family-friendly dance parties are especially fun because no one gets a crowd moving like little kids who aren’t afraid of looking silly! Dress as a member of the animal kingdom, and show off those dance moves. Awards can be given for best costume, worst costume, best dance moves, etc.

Darwin Discourse

Invite guest speakers to discuss the importance of intellectual bravery, perpetual curiosity, and hunger for truth. Topics might come from a wide range of fields including: science, ethics, literature, technology, art, or politics. Speakers can come from just about anywhere, including your local freethought community; a nearby University; or a speakers’ bureau.

Discovery Day

What better way to honor Charles Darwin than to study natural history? Organize an outing to a Museum of Natural History or utilize some of the video resources above to promote scientific knowledge.
