Share Article

Al Gore's non-profit is participating in unique, collaborative effort by eco-community to raise awareness of Earth Day and the many challenges facing our environment.

We created EarthDayWebcast.com to serve as a digital 'soapbox' to reach and mobilize the global environmental community. Now that The Climate Project is involved, that soapbox has just gotten a lot bigger -- and everyone wants to get onboard

The Climate Project (TCP), founded by former Vice President Al Gore, is announcing its limited partnership with Eco-Active Media, Inc. and Green Planet Search in the world's first interactive Earth Day Webcast. The event, spanning a four-month period from April 1-July 31, 2009, features a collection of environmentally-oriented videos, PSAs and expert forums housed on a 100% solar powered platform created by Green Planet Search. Special live streaming will also take place the week of Earth Day (April 22).

Many leading environmental organizations will participate in and promote the Webcast. The goal is to unite environmentally conscious individuals from around the world and to present solutions on how to better protect our planet.

"We created EarthDayWebcast.com to serve as a digital 'soapbox' to reach and mobilize the global environmental community. Now that The Climate Project is involved, that soapbox has just gotten a lot bigger -- and everyone wants to get onboard," said Eco-Active Media President Peter Insalaco.

Not only will non-profits, government agencies, and businesses provide content for the Webcast, but also celebrities, authors, teachers, students, scientists, and local community leaders.

"As the event coincides with Earth Day, we anticipate many people will be inspired to take action and to make important changes in the way they use our planet's resources," said Jenny Clad, Executive Director of The Climate Project.
