San Francisco & New York

Imagine if everyone on the street wore a nametag. How would it change your city?
Join us for the fifth year of Nametag Day:
What's in a nametag?
A nametag says “I am open. I want to talk to you.” It adds an element of humanity to our day, breaking down an invisible barrier between us. As we walk around our cities, we often forget to notice the people around us and miss out on chances to connect.
How can I sign up?
Sign up to help hand out Nametags. You can also spread the word: share Nametag Day on Facebook or Twitter, or to a listserv. We can also give you nametags to do your own thing. Just send us a message and let us know what you want to plan!
Meet your fellow San Franciscans
Ever wanted to connect with the thousands of people walking past you? Each day brings opportunities to make new friends and share experiences. All too often, we forget to notice the people around us. Nametag Day aims to break this barrier with a bit of spontaneity and silliness, strengthening the human element of the urban experience.
Let's document the day!
Add photos on Instagram with #nametagday and we’ll put them up on our site! Send us a tweet at @nametagday if you take any videos.
"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects."
