This Friday, April 18th, 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’s Earth Day theme/focus is on Green Cities. Jacques will also share some of the sustainability work of the nonprofit HUMANBE he founded and the work HUMANBE has done in Second Life.
Since it’s creation, HUMANBE’s mission is to change the individual and collective behavior of humans through the implementation of concrete and sustainable solutions. Recognized as an organization working to build a more humane society, HUMANBE makes real change by making every effort to build awareness of our interdependence.
