International Minimalism Day at January 1st

International Minimalism Day is celebrated on January 1st every year. It has the motto “Minimalism is for everyone” and is an awareness day that draws attention to minimalism as a lifestyle. Minimalists all over the world are demanding a holistic approach to minimalism that encourages focus on the essentials. For the first anniversary in 2023, the focus topic was “conscious consumption” with the call “Stop consuming, start living”. In particular, we wanted to point out that the consumer-oriented affluent society in which people live in western industrialized countries is an artificially created situation.

The second International Minimalism Day 2024 focuses on the fulfillment of our basic needs with the call “Let’s focus on essentials”.

The world we live in has evolved into an unnatural place where we are victims of overconsumption. With the first International Day of Minimalism, we want to send a friendly reminder that we should celebrate our basic needs and urgently put a stop to excessive consumption.
