Opening Entry for UWC Day



Ahoy, and welcome to the Opening Entry in the Captain’s Log.

Why start today? Because it’s UWC Day, the International Day of Peace – a day to inspire action.

That’s why I organized a trash cleanup in Denver, and together with fellow UWC alumni from Oman and Canada picked up rubbish from the banks of the Platte River. Part of the UWC Day of Service, this small gesture sits within a larger global movement of people taking action.

You don’t have to row an ocean or raise a scholarship to improve the world. What action would you take in your own community?

Expect more posts in the coming weeks sharing “behind the scenes” views of the UWC Challenge. Until then, feel free to say sign the Captain’s Log below.

Wishing you smooth seas,
