World-wide Web Conference by WWF

Around the world, every day, millions of people take actions – big and small – that contribute to making their community and their world a more sustainable place to live.

But what difference do those those 24 little hours actually make?

In fact, what difference can we all make if we sum up the 24 hours of everyone around the globe who is out there doing something positive for the planet?

On September 23rd WWF invites YOU to help answer these questions. We will share these ideas in a global discussion using the free micro-blogging service Twitter.

We want to know about the environmental issues that you care about and the action that you are taking to address them.

Do you take shorter showers? Recycle? Bike to work? Volunteer for a local environmental group? Tell us about it!

For 24 hours, starting at 9am in Auckland, New Zealand, WWF staff will join the discussion and share their stories about what a difference their day makes. More then 60 individual WWF staff members representing over 35 countries will be participating in the event.

This is your opportunity to be in touch with the people working on the ground; our specialists working with species, climate change, public policy and much more.

People like Kimunya Mugo, from Kenya, tweeting on his work in Eastern Africa. Or polar bear expert, Geoff York, talking about his expeditions to the Arctic. All the way to New York, where Jim Leape, CEO of WWF International, will be unveiling the latest about climate change negotiations at the United Nations.
Join the conversation on Sept. 23rd: post an update on Twitter with #wwf24!

    Yeah, super short showers are good :) and I walk everyday to work :)) I am more concerned about the scientific evidence:
    TOI (Bangalore): 23rd Sept, page 1
    Global warming? Avg temp rose just 0.010 F since ’99

    TOI(Bangalore): 24th Sept, page 15
    WELCOME SIGN: ‘Ozone hole could heal by end of the century’

    Apart from the small things we all do, any idea how to minimize this big e-trash that is constantly generated !!
    I have this thought that everytime we do something we leave a carbon footprint ! even the very act of blogging, needs servers to be running somewhere to host its content (24×7).
    Blog less ? delete old emails that are of no use ? (even though you might have Gigabytes of space, I say better to delete them )
    Delete old blogs and articles that is of no use ?)

    Any more ideas ? What can we do to minimize the e-trash we constantly generate ?

    Opposite shoe sign deserves a little exploration and some inner reflection. ,
