the annual

World’s Greatest Smile - Start with a Smile - Day

We are looking forward to the next World’s Greatest Smile-Day
and announce the date of this year’s World’s Greatest Smile Day soon!


The goal of World’s Greatest Smile - Start with a Smile - Day

is to give people from all over the world the possibility to state together that there is willingness for an intelligent and peaceful international communication.
Smiling is without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Therefore Smiling is
international and an intelligent start of peaceful communication.
And so we use as a symbol one of the least common denominators of communication - a smile.

Your participation

Participating in the World’s Greatest Smile - Start with a Smile - Day is a symbolic act, just needs a few moments, and you can take part wherever you are on that day because participation is not attached to a certain place!

So smile on the World’s Greatest Smile Day for a moment - as long or short as you wish and wherever you like to, you don’t even have to leave the house to participate.
More efficient is your participation if you even smile in a group, for example your business, your school or any other gathering of people. Let us know where we can download a picture of your Smile, we might even publish it on this WGS website!

It is a symbolic smile to express the wish for a friendlier communication and we wanted to make participation as easy as possible to enable everybody to take part. And so it is really very easy to do it.
And if you do it right, you’ll have a lot of fun as well!
