“Solibad Day” aims at promoting Solibad’s actions, by creating “happenings” all around the world. A unique Concept
For the past two years, we have created a concept of worldwide flashmobs. On September 29th 2012, more than 100 cities joined the movement in unity – a World record. In 2014, the theme has changed – not a flashmob, but a theme around Solibad’s 7 letters…
Solibad Day 2014
June 28th 2014
THE THEME – “Seven Letters, One Wor(l)d”.
The idea is to show Solibad’s support all around the world, by creating the seven letters of the word “SOLIBAD”, in different ways. It can be human letters. It can be balloons. It can be.. anything. Either just one letter, or all letters one by one, or the whole word.
There is, as you can see, a twist with the motto. Solibad makes one word, but also makes one worLd (hence the different colour for the “L” in the logo)
We need creativity. The more original, the better. You can use badminton items (shuttles, rackets, nets, etc). The place you do it is also important – the more symbolic of your country, the better. Or you can use tradition costumes. Anyways, it’s all yours to create and have fun.
The advantage of this theme is that it’s simple, and you can do it even if there are only few of you. But if there are many people, it’s even better !
The idea is to send a High Resolution photograph (or a video if more appropriate, or both) of your SOLIBAD LETTER(S) the very same day of the event, so that we can compile them all the same evening and send it to the media very quickly. It will have a bigger impact. Find a spot where you can take the picture from above ideally.
The Date : June 28th 2014 !
Let’s make it happen…
