Today is Blog Action Day. The theme this year is Human Rights. Founded in 2007, Blog Action Day brings together bloggers from different countries, interests and languages to blog about one important global topic on the same day. Past topics have included Water, Climate Change, Poverty, Food and the Power of We, with over 25,000 blogs taking part since 2007.
Human Rights was also the topic last week in the Student Blogging Challenge. The provided some great games and challenges:
Kids go global – website
Check out the habitat of two different cities – how does it compare with where you live? – primary/elementary students
Environmental Intelligence – traffic, trash and pollution – primary/elementary
Free the children – website
Generation On – make your mark on the world
Cyber schoolbus – United Nations
Youthink – stories and ideas of how youth are changing the world
Some of these I know, some are new and I am looking forward to checking them out.
Many, many other bloggers created posts today for Blog Action Day. Some are highlighted in this collection.
