Today is the day when people all over the world get united to protect the planet! Join!
More than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide will again switch off their lights for Earth Hour 2012 alone, sending a powerful message for action on climate change. Without a doubt, it’s shown how great things can be achieved when people come together for a common cause.
Global warming is the greatest threat facing our planet today. A warming planet alters weather patterns, water supplies, seasonal growth for plants and a sustainable way of life for us, and the world’s wildlife. Climate change has already started, but it’s not too late to take action. There’s still time for us all to be part of the solution.
The Earth hour is yet again another proof of the power of people
Ecology tourism! Do you know the option?
Ecology tourism has been around since approximately 2006 (maybe even longer for those who know how to live in harmony with the environment) and despite it’s a quickly growing sector, it remains undiscovered by most travellers. That’s a shame! Ecological traveling is a great opportunity to combine your passion for travelling with your consciousness about the environmnetal problems. Decrease your negative footprint and increase your travel experience!
Travellers who already tried it search for independent, responsible and sustainable travelling, not harmful to the world climate. Saving the planet’s environment is something we truly need to protect.
Ecological traveling is the opposite of mass tourism and it’s main principles are adabtability to local communities and cultures, and responsiblity towards the environment in terms of conservation of the wildlife.
By bringing you closer to the local community and by involving the locals in your travel experience ecological tourism teaches you about the world’s diversity and helps you to protect it. Yes, it is an experience in the true sense of the meaning. You are not just a passive turist, you embrace the nature and cultures by smelling it, feeling it and learning about it.
This great opportunity to benefit from local life can offer a full range of experience from luxury to simple backpacking tourism. It is a simply an authentic experience.

Ecosia is an eco-friendly search engine. It donates at least 80% of its revenue to the protection of the rainforest! Ecosia is a social business dedicated to environmental sustainability via the donation of revenue to the world’s most effective rainforest protection programs.
The search engine mask at Ecosia.org, is powered by Bing and Yahoo. It lets an essential and routine task – searching the web – double as an ecological contribution: not only are Ecosia search emissions offset, but every click on a sponsored ad within Ecosia translates into either cents for the environment - or cents for generating more cents for the environment.
Cents may not sound like much, but they certainly add up. From its inception until December 2010, Ecosia was able to generate just under 125,000 Euros (164,000 USD) for its rainforest protection program with the WWF – and that in just the first year!
I would like to start our blogging differently - living in international environment will enable you to experience, face to face, the amazing opportunity of meeting marvelous people. Sometimes their presence, the fact that you were lucky to get to know them and their experience they share (if you are lucky) can teach you more about yourself and about the possibilities in life than any wise book or lecture. They are the living proofs of possibilities and inspiration.
Dear friends, with love!
Do you have any friends around you who inspired you so much that you maybe changed the life direction?
