 Post subject: Celebrate Earth Day with SANParks
Unread postPosted: Fri Apr 18, 2008 11:10 am 
Guys I've made promises about announcing an event that you all can get involved in and here I am keeping it! :angel:

SANParks is gearing up to celebrate Earth Day 2008 on the 22 April!

Our theme is “Defend our Earth, care for its Life and People”.

We're inviting you to show your support for SANParks and for Earth Day 2008, but most importantly, for Mother Earth, by making a promise to make a change.

You could promise to turn off the water while brushing your teeth – start buying organic food - recycle- anything, as long as you keep your promise!

You can share your pledge with SANParks and the world by logging it online on the 22 April 2008 and helping to grow this community working to “Defend our Earth and care for its Life and People”!

This will be happening in conjuction with the activities taking place at our parks for the day.

I will be happy to provide more information - just drop me a line here or email me @ zakiyaf@sanparks.org

I hope to see you all participate!

lotsa luv
Zax

This is a lovely project Zaks! The pledge form will be available online from late on the 21 April until early on the 23 April-so we have a record of all contributions. As soon as it's live we'll post a link to it in this thread too... :D

:hmz: Tuesday eve. I'll use no electricity whatsoever, except the bit in my phone.

I already separate all garbage, that's fairly standard in Holland.

I already use as good as no electricity or gas, use public transport instead of cars, and at work my PC's switch off when not in use, the books (15 meters or such) I used to publish are a website only now, saving quite a forest....

I can't see any way to cut down more. :cry:

Yup...

Basically the homepage will be carrying it as the feature article - login on Tuesday - hit the link on the frontpage and fill in the form... Easy Peasy

We will then publish the pledges on the site and provide you all with a link to it so you can see your own pledge as well as what others pledged.

zakiya this is just so very exciting :dance: Can we pledge more than once?

I think we should aim for a record number of people pledging. Our most number of people on line on 27th Nov last year was I think 173, lets try and at least double that or more with pledges.

Thanks Jaz

I like the idea of going for a record... but I think one pledge per person is enough - the idea is to get everyone to make a promise they can actually keep for the rest of their lives, hopefully.

So spread the word to all the forumites and lets blast off
