    Webcast Around the Earth Day 2008-Tuesday, April 22nd
    ...
    Earth Day is on Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008. To celebrate the day, we will be working collaboratively with people around the world to produce and air a live webcast which will last for the entire 24 hours of the GMT day! This is a HUGE challenge and we're hopeful that you'll participate! At this point we're trying to find a webcast academy intern or a webcast academy alumni to sign up to stream an hour or two of the GMT day. It would be nice to take the skype conversations and stream them out via both ustream and World Bridges.
    You could focus your hour long block in any way that you see fit. You could speak with local business leaders, community members, engineers, scientists, school leaders, architects, professors, politiicans, etc. Of course your conversations don't need to be local-you could certainly speak to anyone potentially (imagine if we could speak with Al Gore...how cool would that be! I think we might blow up ustream and the World Bridges shoutcast server if this happened!)

    There will be many ways to participate in the day, even if you are not interested in moderating for an hour. You can help by finding interesting speakers to be interviewed or by simply listening along with your classroom. You can also help by advertising the webcast through your various communication channels and social networks.

I think we might blow up ustream and the World Bridges shoutcast server if this happened!)
    If you are interested in participating, please read the blog post that Matt Montagne put together on this idea. Ideally we would have people from all over the globe moderating the webcast so that we can cover the full 24 hour GMT day (actually, we really want moderators from all over the world to help us all form a more global perspective on this issue).
    There will be many ways to participate in the day, even if you are not interested in moderating for an hour. You can help by finding interesting speakers to be interviewed or by simply listening along with your classroom. You can also help by advertising the webcast through your various communication channels and social networks.
    More About the 24 Hour Earth Day 2008 Webcastathon
    What: This is intended to be a 24 hour long conversation about the health of our planet. We hope to have participants from around the world moderate an hour long conversation. This conversation can be planned at the discretion of the moderator(s) for that hour. Potential guests could include local leaders, student environmental advocates, scientists/engineers, politicians, grassroots leaders, etc.
    When: Tuesday, April 22nd 2008. We will follow the 24 hour GMT day (et-we'll use the time in Greenwich, England as the standard for planning the time blocks.
    Why: The goal is to help our participants (both listeners and moderators) form a more global perspective on the issue of sustainability and the health of the earth.
    Please sign up to moderate in the chart below...if you are not interested in moderating an hour but you're willing to help out in some other way, enter you contact information at the bottom of the chart:

    Exhibits dealing with certain topics in a common space-Kelly V
    Special schedule where we plant trees-Raythan

    Advising activity
    Keynote speaker and discussion
    Wildcat Morning News-in the weeks leading up to this we could have them do a short spot on the Wildcat Morning News
