Today, I am wondering what are the most relevant ways to expose people how our environment is changing.

Shooting and publishing photo is definitely one of them.

Actually, Photos give us  so many accurate information on how humans see and feel its:

  • Urban environment
  • Natural environment
  • Mineral environment
  • Social environment…

Did you observe before jumping form 2009 to 2010,  how  media, like Reuters or The Guardian, used pictures and slideshows to illustrate the story of the year?

Otherwise, we all know that technologies are more and more user friendly and people have access to powerful cameras and gears. People can publish easily their art and pictures stories on the web thanks to the grow of specific applications, like Flickr, Picasa…

Everyone can shoot, and expose the world what they see.

I am a huge fan of shooting, publishing and searching photos on the web and I can not deny that it is one of my favorite resource of blogging inspiration.

If you think that your photos rocks (I love this one) and you are looking for publishing, sharing and quality web app,  I advice you to check out a new french website called DarQroom!

Bombardement Sonore

Few hours left before the birth of 2010. Time for me to write the last original post of the year.
To get inspiration, I asked my brother (who is a professional DJ) to compose a piece of music which he called ” bombardement sonore”.

(If you like his music, be a fan of him on facebook and follow him on twitter)

Well, when I listened to it for the first time, I had the same felling that being alone in a forest, or in front of a huge breaking shore break! Nature is so powerful!

Well, it also makes me think that for almost 50 years we have succeeded in changing Nature against its will,  but the day that we will have to face nature riots, obviously, human won’t be able to change anything!

2009 shows us that politics are still not ready to change, but I think people are.
Communities are building  networks to show how we are destroying our futur.
Communitites are creating platefroms to learn and teach how to live greener and more conscious of social matters.

2010 will be the year of people, communities and life changes.

Tool: the web!

Spread the word that people are ready to hold the flag, to face their responsabilities.
Politics listen the noise of our outdoors:  they ask for action NOW, not for politricks…

COP15 on the web: which web resources am I using?

United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009

What are my favorite web resources I use to follow United Nations Climate Change Conferences in Copenhagen?
Actually, I am using 2 resources :

  • the dedicated twitter and the associated twitter search on #COP15 .
  • TckTckTck, a consortium of 188 faith groups (NGO, citizens and public learders).  The site also features coverage of the conference in live streaming video.

I have also been using sometime others resources like the facebook fan page and of course, the official web site.

Otherwise, before  conferences strated,  I decided to follow  elyseecop15 which is Nicolas Sarkozy’s twitter account for cop15. Humm, nothing has been published on it.  Fake or real? (sorry folks it is in french).

Looking forward to reading, watching and listening to results.
