Blog Post that we used to announce the 2009 Earthcast

After a successful 24 Hour Webcastathon on Earth Day 2008, the Earthbridges community will be back for a second 24 hour live webcastahon on Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009. Once again we'll be looking for experts in the field, K20 students/teachers, or anyone with an interest in the environment to help out with this 24 hour live broadcast on the Internet. We'll need help lining up guests, creating promotional materials and awareness raising PSAs, and of course moderating hour long blocks of time. Further details on the event will be posted at a later date, but if you are interested in participating in some capacity, please fill out the following form to express your interest. By filling out the form you are in no way obligated to participate. We're just trying to collect some preliminary contact information in preparation for planning the event. More information and meeting times for January will be posted soon.
