Plan Now for our Planet on 10/10/10
On October 10, 2010, you can help our ocean, our climate, and our world by hosting a Global Work Party!
While World Oceans Day 2010 is still fresh, the BP Deepwater disaster in the Gulf of Mexico expands, and momentum continues to build connecting the health of our ocean, the health of our climate, and the health of our cities and communities, you can help by planning an event for 10/10/10.
This Global Work Party provides an opportunity for zoos, aquariums, museums, nature centers, schools and all our 1,200 Partner organizations in 90 countries to organize something tangible in your local area that will celebrate climate solutions. Some examples of activities already planned include: bike repair workshops in San Francisco, school insulating teams in London, wasteland-to-veggie-gardens in New Zealand, and solar panel installations in Kenya. The ideas and opportunities are limitless!
Our Partners reach millions of people; with your active involvement, we can help this event create a huge impact!
