The Power of We is a celebration of people working together to make a positive difference in the world, either for their own communities or for people they will never meet half way around the world.
The organisers say that Community, Equality, Transparency/Anti-Corruption and Freedom, and People Power will be the sub-themes that Bloggers will write about on 15th October 2012.
Previously on Blog Action Day the Hedon Blog has just written articles around the general theme; Climate Change about Incineration in 2009, Water about the Waste Water Treatment Works in 2010, or Food about Hedon eggs in 2011.
This year, YOU can say what the Hedon Blog should cover! And perhaps you might want to send in your articles and comments, even poems or short stories, for publication on Blog Action Day?
So what should we feature on the Hedon Blog? Here are some tips from the organisers:
“You might profile someone or a group who inspires you by the way they made a positive influence, talk about your own efforts to make change with others, or highlight a cause that is successful for using people power to make a difference.
There are hundreds of examples you could choose from such as fighting for healthier meals for kids in schools, protecting people’s rights in countries far away, stopping practices in industries that hurt the environment and communities, challenging authorities to listen and act for the people, ensuring people like small-scale farmers get fair deals, the rights of women and children are protected and many, many more.
You might even want to discuss the strategies and tips of how to organise to encourage other people to make change happen on the issues they care about, or make it easier for them to join in existing groups.”
Hundreds of thousands of people take part in Blog Action Day from countries all over the planet – and for one day only, the internet will be buzzing with articles dedicated to The Power of We.
The Hedon Blog – with your help – will be part of that phenomenon!
