Event Details

YOU CREATE AN EVENT THAT WORKS FOR YOU: Any size. Anywhere in the world. Signing up takes three minutes.

Join us for the sixth annual Character Day on September 27-28 2019!

Last year there were over 200,000 events around the globe, with people tapping into the conversation from 150 countries.

Character Day is an annual event that unites millions of people in schools, companies, and homes to develop and deepen their character: strengths like empathy, grit, gratitude, and leadership. Why? Because character development leads not only to school and career success, but also to stronger, more engaged individuals and a more just world. Last year, over 4 million people across 200,000 groups in 125 countries and all 50 states participated in Character Day.

This year, Character Day focuses on the relationship between character and technology. How does technology enhance our character development? How does turning off the screens enhance our character? Join us September 27-28, 2019 by signing up your school, school district, company, organization, congregation, or home.

These films directed by Tiffany Shlain are featured in Character Day events: 30,000 Days (11 min), The Adaptable Mind (11 min), Connected (80 min), The Making of a Mensch (11 min), and The Science of Character (8 min). All films have suggested age ranges and are translated into several languages.

The 2019 Live Stream Lineup will be announced closer to Character Day. It will be lively, educational, engaging, and fantastic! In the meantime, check out last year’s live stream. Each interview is roughly 15 minutes, intermixed with live events around the globe. See full program and bios here.
