Blog Action Day: October 16

It’s that time of the year again – get ready to blog for good, all at once, around the world, on a single day in October. Urbe Bloggers will join this adventure for the third time. So first le's look at what Blog Action Day is:


Since 2007, Blog Action Day has focused bloggers around the world to blog about one important global topic on the same day. Past topics have included water, climate change and poverty.

This year, Blog Action Day will be held on October 16, which coincides with World Food Day, so naturally our 2011 theme is FOOD

Food is something that we all share in common, but is distinct to each of our cultures. The way we produce, distribute and consume food is crucial to our shared future, and the unhealthy imbalance of food scarcity in developing world and food over-abundance in the developed world is unsustainable for us all.
