Blog Action Day has gotten tons of buzz in the blogosphere, and for very good reason – it’s a great way to get people thinking about a very big issue – the environment. It’s something that affects every person on the planet, so getting tons of bloggers to write about it results in a global reach.
Now, the Knight News Challenge is not necessarily about the environment (although depending on the ideas you have, it can be), and it is focused on projects that benefit specific communities as opposed to the entire world, but in this increasingly interconnected world, the two can be connected through the net.
Have the many different posts for Blog Action Day (go here to read them all) inspired you to make your city greener? Does your idea use digital technology to deliver information to members of your community? Turn your thoughts into a proposal at www.newschallenge.org, and you could be one step to winning funding, realizing your dreams, and making your home a greener place.
