How to Celebrate World Swift Day ?

Spread the word

Every year on June 7, help tell the world about World Swift Day:

Let the local media know ….tell them about Swifts & why you love them & why & how we need to protect them.

Tell your friends, wildlife associations, neighbours & colleagues too!

Use this opportunity to talk (on D-Day) about events you have planned for later, throughout the year, to help Swifts (Swift walks, presentations, exhibitions, animations,…).

Share this page on social media and use the hashtags #WorldSwiftDay and #WSD2024 (in 2024) to join other Swift fans around the world. These hashtags will enhance the buzz and the impact amongst journalists and various audiences.

Our Patron Jane Goodall has been posting special WSD video messages that have had a great impact on increasing the buzz.

Organize an event

Whether a press conference, a walk, a talk, showing a film, having a party, an exhibition, a workshop, singing a « Swift song » contest, an arts & crafts activity,…  There are no limits on creativity. Every means is good to attract attention to our common cause!

Your target groups can be the public, your work place, local school, youth groups, associations for wildlife…

If June 7 is on a weekday, it is a good opportunity to organise something within a school, an administration, a company,… If it’s during a weekend, you will have more opportunities with the main public. You may organise an event on one of the days right before or after June 7 but then, don’t forget to communicate about it on D-Day!

If you fill in the registration form, more people will know about it.

Join in this very important action to raise awareness of these fascinating birds, the issues that are threatening their survival and how to save them.
