Day by day, people are becoming more responsible 21st century citizens
Being a 21st century citizen means being a “digital” activist
On September 21, 2014 I joined about 399,999 of my friends in New York City to take a walk down Central Park West. Putting our boots on the ground to stand up for the climate, we armed ourselves only with smart phones. With lackluster news coverage we were able to amplifying the effective of the march by having a few hundred thousand people share their experience with their friends in emails and on social platforms. A few days later, on Tuesday, President Obama spoke at the United Nations on the topic of the climate.
The climate is changing faster than our efforts to address it. The alarm bells keep ringing. Our citizens keep marching. We cannot pretend we do not hear them. We have to answer the call. We know what we have to do to avoid irreparable harm.” – President Barack Obama.
