This Friday, April 17th, TechSoup’s NonProfit Commons in Second Life is happy to feature Jacques Macaire (jacmacaire Humby in SL), who will discuss Earth Day, environmental awareness and sustainability. Earth Day is an annual global event celebrated on April 22nd to show support for the protection of our planet and those living on it. This year is Earth Day’s 45th anniversary and the year to change our future, by becoming ourselves the leaders. It’s our turn to lead.
Jacques will also share some of the sustainability action and work with the nonprofit HUMANBE he founded, and also with the other nonprofits he helps as Sustainable Human Development Director of PROTECT YOURSELF1 or with EARTH GUARDIANS FRANCE which is part, on April 22, 2015, one of the biggest grassroots effort in History on Earth Day by planting trees or seeds, with the ONE BILLION TREE project. He will also introduce us to the actions of its youth founder, Xiuhtezcatl, a 14 year old boy.
Join us in Second Life!
