A calendar with all the world whatever days in the world.

The UN uses the 'World ~ Day' concept to attract attention to certain causes or issues that need attention according to the General Assembly, see link.

Many others have copied this concept, think of World Sysadmin Appreciation Day and the likes.

Now put them all in a calendar, electronic or not. If you want some distraction, you look at the calendar and take action to make the world a better place.

       Can we have a 'World Not-an-observance/ holiday/appreciation/ historical event anywhere Day?'

       WIFRT, I supposed a day when nobody cares, as in...
Hey! It's World Peace Day!
Yeah, whatever.

       [RayfordSteele] Sure, just so long as it doesn't encroach on the most important of all celebrations: National Watercress Week [link]

       I interpreted the title as meaning that we should have one day which is not dedicated to a specific cause, but is one where everyone relaxes and thinks "yeah, whatever...".
