Change.org announces that after overseeing Blog Action Day for the past two years, it’s handing the reins over to VOICE, an organization incubated at Oxfam and supported by ONE.org, Save the Children, WaterAid, the UN Foundation and others.
Since Blog Action Day 2011 (October 16) coincides with World Food Day, the topic this year will be FOOD.
Food is something that we all share in common, but is distinct to each of our cultures. The way we produce, distribute and consume food is crucial to our shared future, and the unhealthy imbalance of food scarcity in developing world and food over-abundance in the developed world is unsustainable for us all.
Blog Action Day 2011 will be an opportunity to open the conversation about how food impacts all of us – individually and globally.
First and last, the purpose of Blog Action Day is to create a discussion. We ask bloggers to take a single day out of their schedule and focus it on an important issue. By doing so on the same day, the blogging community effectively changes the conversation on the web and focuses audiences around the globe on that issue. Our hope is that out of this discussion naturally flow ideas, advice, plans, and action.
The big event is only a few weeks away, so please help kick things off by registering for Blog Action Day 2011 by clicking the link below:
