Sunday (10.10.10) has been earmarked by 350.org as a “Global Work Party” with events planned in 140 countries to bring people together to address climate change. Now Edinburgh’s on the map!
On Sunday Edinburgh hosts it’s first ever CARROTMOB!!
“Carrotmob is a type of consumer activism in which businesses compete at how socially responsible they can be, and then a network of consumers spends money to support whichever business makes the strongest offer. We harness consumer power to make it possible for the most socially-responsible business practices to also be the most profitable choices. It’s the opposite of a boycott.”
Check out the cool cartoon on the Carrotmob site!
I might go hangout for a while, see what happens.
..Hey, d’you think they’ll serve carrot juice?!!
D’you think people will dress like carrots?!!
Oh I hope so! Anyway, might see you there my little juliennes..
