Get Ready for Blog Action Day

Blog Action Day 2008: Poverty

On October 15th the second Blog Action Day will occur. Last year bloggers united for the environment. This year’s topic will be poverty. The new campaign was launched last Friday but already now over 2000 blogs with an audience of over 3500000 people has registered as participators to this year’s event.

"It's been almost a year since, with your help, we held the smashingly successful Blog Action Day 2007, and as of a few hours ago, our 2008 campaign has officially begun. This year our theme is "Poverty" and we'll be encouraging bloggers around the world to once again explore this issue on your blogs on October 15th."

Green Blog participated in the event last year, and we will of course participate this year also. Because just like Al Gore says, you can't solve climate change without dealing with poverty:

"Earlier this year, Bono and I spoke about the intersection between the extreme poverty in the developing world – especially in Africa – and the climate crisis. It is impossible to solve one of these issues without dealing with the other."

Other more popular and well-known blogs that will participate includes blogs such as TechCrunch.com, ReadWriteWeb.com, Mashable.com, SmashingMagazine.com, GigaOm.com, Jauhari.net, Problogger.net, CopyBlogger.com, DailyBlogTips.com, ZenHabits.net, Inhabitat.com, VentureBeat.com, Mentalfloss.com, PronetAdvertising.com and TorrentFreak.com.

Elena Valenciano, a prominent member of the Spanish Parliament and spokesperson for the Human Rights Committee, will also be taking part in Blog Action Day.
