Become A Host – FAQ
What is the difference between a UTW Day Party, Event and Positive Local Action?
A UTW Day Event takes place at a venue, i.e. a bar, a coffee shop or bowling alley. Your guests will include people you do not know. You may have a stage and bands performing. You may be charging a cover fee.
A UTW Day Party takes place in your home; it’s not a public event. Your guests are people you know, friends, family, neighbors …
A UTW Day Positive Local Action can be anywhere, as long as it benefits your own community, i.e. a street cleanup, a playground beautification, making sandwiches for people experiencing homelessness etc.
