Live Earth Update; Concerts + Related Events

The planning for live earth is well and truly under way, it's not long now and i`m excitied :-)

I`m not going to highlight all the ways in which the concerts are available but both XFM and MSN will be covering the entire series globally for the full 24hrs!

Undobutedly the concerts will be a superb spectacle, recent coverages suggests that they will also leave a green legacy at some of the venues. More interestingly, there are going to be 6000 sataliete live earth events around the world in more than 100 countries.

Also, the money raised from the events will go towards the Alliance for Climate Protection, an organization with a long term vision. Also, the live earth website and a supporting book are being published in order to give people effective tips on what they can do to reduce there emissions. Live earth is also working closely with Avaaz, an online action community, to promote personal and political engagement with climate change.

There are also a great series of videos about the topic, it`s the first time that i have seen so much creative energy going into this. There are some really great artists working on the SOS part of live earth, all the asociated media.

Ohh, its all so confusing, what can i do...



Nanatuk, a band of the British Antarctic Survey will be contributing live fron Anatarctica!
