Facebook Shut Down!

Hey all, I’m Chelsea, a freshman at CU Boulder, Environmental Studies and Policy major and loving every minute of it! I joined the iMatter blog team to be an advocator for our beautiful planet Earth through educating my generation.

March 28th, 2011 at 8:30pm wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, I encourage you to join the estimated 1.3 billion people in the largest voluntary action ever witnessed.  All you have to do? Turn out the lights! This simple act of environmental stewardship is a combined effort of more than 128 countries that comes together to prove that the world wants environmental justice! So basically… turn out the lights, turn off the computer (Facebook may shut down for the hour!) and TV. Use your hour to be with friends, family, go above a beyond and use the hour to make plans and actions on how you and your community can go beyond the hour and live and advocate environmental friendly lifestyles! The World Wildlife Foundation is a major supporter of Earth Hour 2011.

To sign the pledge and find out more YOU can do to go beyond the hour, check out: http://www.worldwildlife.org/sites/earthhour/

peace, Chelsea

  1. Nice Chelsea –

    I think you might like this show by Thomas Friedman about getting out of Facebook and into someone’s face – He says “Exxon Mobile, they’re not on facebook they’re out in your face, Peabody coal they’re not in a chat room they’re in the cloak room of the US congress handing out bags of money”

    Moral to the story is that social media is a powerful tool to get us together out in the streets singing our harmony loud enough so that we’ll be impossible to ignore!!!!!!
