About Unfuck The World Day

A few years after making L.A. her home, German native Maike Both began the Unfuck The World movement. What started as a hobby has since grown into a worldwide movement of people taking positive, local action. UTW Day is celebrated annually in countries around the globe, bringing together those who seek to create positive change in their communities, spreading awareness and inspiring others to do the same.

In 2012, a friend jokingly remarked to UTW founder Maike, “You should have an Unfuck The World Day!” She immediately jumped at the idea. With a small team of friends in L.A. and UTW supporters around world, 12 events were organized on 4 continents all taking place on June 8, 2013. The cities that participated in the 1st Annual Unfuck The World Day included
 ASIA: Subic Bay, Philippines                                                                                      OCEANIA: Traralgon, Australia; Brisbane, Queensland                                        EUROPE: Hamburg, Germany; Reykjavik, Iceland; London, UK                                             NORTH AMERICA: Los Angeles, CA; Makanda, IL; Wausau, WI; Grapevine, TX; Henderson, NV; Charleston, SC

When the first UTW Day took place in 2013, the positive response from participants all over the world was overwhelming. Our team at the L.A. headquarters knew right away they wanted to do it again!

Many of the first year’s organizers returned for the celebration of the 2nd Annual UTW Day in 2014. They were joined by new members across the globe who were also inspired to create positive change by hosting events and organizing positive local action in their hometowns.
