yara and 7iber go green with 350.orgThe Youth Association for Reality & Awareness (YARA.org) and the citizen media platform 7iber.com are teaming up to collaborate for a memorable 350.org event on 09/10/10 between 3pm and 5:30pm.

350.org – an international campaign that aims to build a movement of uniting the world around solutions to climate change – will be collaborating with many organizations and individuals around the globe to hold over 5,000 activities in over 174 countries on October 10th, 2010.

Here in Jordan, YARA and 7iber are looking to bring together people from various backgrounds to combat and raise awareness on climate change. The goal is to rally at least 350 volunteers to plant 1,500 olive trees on a plot of land in Mafraq on Saturday, October 9th – a day before the global 350.org event. Not only will we be planting trees to help fight climate change and CO2 emissions, but we will be planting the trees on the lands of less fortunate farmers in the Mafraq area; a win-win situation for both the environment and poverty. The more trees donated, the more we’ll be able to plant on a larger plot of land!

So what can you do?

1) Donate! Donations for trees are currently needed. Each tree costs 4.5JDs (the cost includes tree, drip irrigation system, fence for the land, and plowing the land).

2) Participate and volunteer to do some planting!

3) Help document the event with 7iber! We’re looking for stories, photos and videos.

4) Spread the word!

The deadline for donations and participation will be October 5th, 2010.

Stay tuned, as more information will be provided regarding the event’s logistics, including a map and directions.
