This year’s Global Wellness Day (GWD), which is set to take place on June 8, will celebrate the theme #MagentaNature.

#MagentaNature symbolises reconnection with nature, inviting individuals to embrace the transformative power of harmonising with the elements around them.

The annual wellness event, which this year celebrates its 13th anniversary, will invite people of all ages to live life in unity with nature.

Last year, the theme for GWD was Dance Magenta.


The #MagentaNature theme sees GWD shift its focus to the connection between humanity and the natural world, advocating for a comprehensive, nature-based approach to wellbeing.

The theme will see GWD participants celebrating a connection with the natural world, creating experiences that nurture physical, mental and spiritual health.

“Global Wellness Day is not just a celebration; it is a call to action, an invitation for individuals to actively participate in their own wellbeing and contribute to a harmonious relationship with the world around us.”

The four pillars of #MagentaNature

More than 150 Global Wellness Day ambassadors, key supporters and volunteers will bring together four pillars of the #MagentaNature philosophy to outline a transformative action plan.

“This plan encapsulates both the tangible and intangible dimensions of connecting with nature,” said GWD founder Belgin Aksoy. “Together, let us embark on this transformative journey towards a healthier, more connected and nature-centric existence with Magenta Nature.”
