International Internet-Free Day

Communication is an integral part of human life. They help save personal time and speed up business. The Internet is the most popular information source, a convenient tool for communication and entertainment. Due to the fact that many people have become dependent on the global network, it was decided to create an international day without the Internet.

This holiday is celebrated every year on the last Sunday of January. A lot of people from around the world join to this event every year. The event is celebrated by members of public associations, users of the World Wide Web, activists of thematic organizations.

For the first time the holiday was established in the West. Exact information about the time and author of this event could not be found. The researchers suggested that it was organized by the Institute for Social Inventions, located in the UK. There is also a version according to which the founder is one of the non-commercial Internet sites.

The idea of ​​abandoning the global network has become popular since the beginning of the 21st century. The followers of this idea have become regular online users who advocate to refuse to communicate on the network at least for a day. However, they are not opponents of the Internet itself.

Every year on the last Sunday of January, a variety of educational events are organized. Social activists talk about the need and importance of real communication, promoting the rejection of online communications. The media publish reports on current events, feature articles, show programs and films about the Internet on TV.
