Live event - Earthcast 2008 - join in!

On Earthday, April 22nd, there will be a 24 hour webcast about the health of our planet, planned and implemented by educators. I'm very honored to be participating as an invited guest, talking about The Earth Day Groceries Project. I hope other project participants will join in the conversation!

The event is called Earthcast 2008, and it will be broadcast/shared in a variety of ways for 24 hours. Be sure to tune in and participate, if you want, on Earthday. It begins at 12:00 AM GMT on Earthday. (that's 9 PM April 21 on the East Coast of the US, 6 PM on the West Coast, etc)

I'll be there on April 21st, from 6 to 7 PM, West Coast time.

Hi Mark,
Thanks for spreading the word. This is the first year I participate in the Earth Groceries Project. It a true grassroots movement! This project exemplifies excellence in education for the 21st Century. Greetings from the It's Elementary Webcast Team!!!

I believe that global warming does not exist. Acording to TIME magazine, their have been 5 global warmings so there had to be 5 global coolings so that humans could inhabit the earth. Global warming is a fraud and is made up so people can get attention. God controls the earth/weather, NOT humans. Get it through your heads!

Jose, it was a thrill to be a part of your webcast on Earth Day - thanks so much!

To anonymous - your comment is a good example of why I wish I were able to disallow anonymous comments.

I truly appreciate the educational community of which I am a part here, where people have the courage to leave their names - and usually links to their Internet presence.

Hey Mark-

I really enjoyed listening to you live during Earthcast08. Your project is an inspiring one. And I agree with Alice...the photos of the student decorated bags on the website.

I hope you had a great Earth Day. Thank you for sharing your story.
