We were so excited to hear that this year’s theme is:

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CHARACTER

AND

SCREEN USE

What’s the relationship between character development and screen use? When and how does technology enhance our character development? When and how does turning off technology enhance our character?

WHAT IS CHARACTER DAY? 

Character Day is an annual event that brings together millions of people in schools, companies, and homes to engage in character development (empathy, grit, gratitude, leadership), which, science proves, leads not only to school and career success, but also to stronger, more engaged individuals and a more just world.
