Everyone can get involved, whether you love bathing or even if you operate a bathing facility

Since its inception in 2018, thousands of people have gathered to shine a spotlight on the vital importance of humanity’s interdependent relationship with water for wellbeing, community and culture. We have had participants engaging from all over the world, including: New Zealand, Iran, Iceland, Japan, Serbia, Fiji, England, Sweden, France, the USA, Scotland, Croatia, Norway, Brazil, Slovenia, Switzerland, Greece, Indonesia, Finland, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Russia, India, United Kingdom, South Africa and Australia.

This year our call is (1) for individuals and bathing facilities to post bathing images on social media with the hashtag #worldbathingday, and (2) for bathing venues to host a live musical performance as part of the “Global Sound Bath” which can be experienced in-person and also viewed as a whole global event online.
