WPD 6·20 envisions a time when synthetic and naturally occurring psychedelic medicines are better understood, made safely and legally available, and appreciated for all their beneficial, wondrous, and sacred uses.


WPD 6·20 shares frontier science and Indigenous wisdom to create awareness about the safe and therapeutic uses of synthetic and naturally occurring psychedelic medicines. Through traditional and social media, art, and music, this day of celebration and discussion engages and unites the curious and experienced.


WPD 6·20 upholds the essential values of sustainability, accessibility, diversity, inclusivity, transparency, and justice. We welcome collaborators and allies from across all identities, spectrums, ages, ethnicities, and geographies.  Join us – better together!



June 20th

On 6·20 we recognize a new age of informed perspectives on the beneficial properties of both modern psychedelic compounds and ancient plant medicines and practices.

6·20 honours the Indigenous wisdom and frontier science that have brought about the current “Psychedelic Renaissance,” a movement which has grown out of the serious, dedicated work of thousands of scientists, therapists, individuals, and organizations challenging the distortions created by prohibition and the War On Drugs. Using social and mainstream media, online discussions, in-person events, art projects and music, 6·20 showcases important insights and increases global awareness of the therapeutic and life-enhancing potential of psychedelics when used responsibly.

WPD 620 is a project of International Psychedelics Awareness Foundation, a non-profit organization welcoming collaborators and allies across all identities, spectrums, and geographies and upholding the values of sustainability, accessibility, diversity, and inclusivity.  





The inaugural World Psychedelics Day 6·20, 2021 planted the seed for an annual, global day of discussion and celebration dedicated to building awareness of, and respect for, the therapeutic and life-enhancing potential of synthetic psychedelics and traditional psychoactive plant medicines.

In 2021, we recorded a number of incisive online dialogues and trialogues with leading thinkers and activists. Click here for access to replay screenings.

In 2022, we collaborated with Ozzo to present a 3D interactive meeting and discussion space.

In 2023, we collaborated with DrugsOverDinner.org to facilitate informed discussions about psychedelics at dinner tables around the world.

With your support and participation, WPD 6·20 will help create a discussion around the legal framework for psychedelic medicines; create awareness of the need to protect endangered psychedelic plants crucial to Indigenous cultures; and promote mental and spiritual well-being.

We chose 6/20 because it’s the solstice (give or take a day), the longest, brightest day of the year, and our goal is to bring light to the subject of psychedelics. Also, 620 rhymes with 420 (cannabis day) and 920 (mushroom day).

We acknowledge our activities are based on the unceded lands of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.


Our development group has included: an internationally respected Indigenous leader in inclusion and reconciliation; producer-directors of 100’s of hours of television programming and educational content for high schools and universities; a business consultant and host/producer of several web series on psychedelics; an executive producer of a feature documentaries on psychedelic medicine and a cybernaut youth leader psychology student. Our media output has received over 50 awards and has been widely reviewed. We’ve worked with and interviewed prominent leaders, innovators, scientists, doctors, and luminaries in the psychedelic field.

Our web team includes leading web designers, privacy experts, streaming and video packaging experts, and an award-winning 3D animator.

We humbly aspire to be true allies of the Indigenous Peoples on whose unceded territories we live and work, and whose sacred psychedelic plant medicines have changed so many lives for the better.
