In conjunction with the Global Work Party, Cradle to Cradle, a event informing children and adults about sustainability was held today in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The Cradle to Cradle event was packed with kids and families, enjoying the sun, learning about sustainability and creating cool things with recycled materials. The photographs below show kids making wallets from old milk cartons and art from recycled material.
The Global Work Party was organized by 350.org and 10:10 and is being heralded as the world’s largest day of civil action ever. Be sure to hop on over to 350.org for more photography around the world.
A post to spread the word about two great upcoming events that are coming up.
10:10:10, the global work party is taking off. On Sunday, over 6000 events will happen in over 180 countries. Everywhere people will be working together to take action on climate change. I will be in Amsterdam at a small event at the Dokhuis taking part in some workshops. Find out more at 10:10:10 or 350.org
The Blog Action Day will follow a few days later on the 15th. Blog Action Day is an annual event that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day. Our aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion around an important issue that impacts us all. Last year the issue was climate change, this year, it is water. Stay tuned for my post on the 15th.
