Today is Blog Action Day: Are You Joining the Power of We?
Since 2007, Blog Action Day has focused the attention of thousands of bloggers from different backgrounds, cultures and interests to discus on one global topic, on one day.
Our past themes have included; Water, Poverty and Climate Change, with bloggers taking part from countries in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Pacific.
This year our theme is the Power of We, a celebration of people working together for positive change, and we chose it to reflect the massive rise in people-powered change that has occurred over the last two years.
From local neighborhood groups to global mass movements, the power of ordinary people to make and influence change cannot be denied and we want to know what you think about it.
Whether you blog, make videos, create podcasts, design graphics or take photos we would love bloggers from the BlogHer network to share their experiences, thoughts and ideas on the Power of We by registering to take part in Blog Action Day and posting their blog on October 15..
It is up to you how you want to talk about the Power of We, but as time is tight since today is Blog Action Day, we have some suggestion you might like to consider. You could discuss:
- A group or organization you are involved with, what they are trying to achieve and how working with each other will help achieve it.
- Historical examples of the Power of We. Have you been inspired by the Anti-Slavery, Suffragette, Civil Rights or other movements? Are there any other people powered movements from history that mean a lot to you?
- Any practical tips and suggestions you have learned on how to organize a group and advocate for a issue you feel passionate about.
- The great Power of We content from Blog Action Day partners Oxfam, Heifer International, Greenpeace and HelpAge International.
You can find out more about Blog Action Day and register to take part by visiting our website.
The Blog Action Day team will be highlighting #PowerOfWe posts via a live stream and our social media channels today on Monday October 15. We hope to see a few BlogHer networks members amongst the coverage.
