What if all environmentalists could work together? Introducing Environmental Countdown (Video)

Environmentalists are like worms.

Yep, earthworms. Our individual work breaks down the waste around us and churns out more healthful substances. We each cover a few square inches of our earth, and sometimes a great number of earthworms can transform a much larger patch of land. According to Charles Darwin, no living thing has had such a profound impact on history as has the earthworm.

What humans have that earthworms don't: brain power. And what many humans have that one human doesn't: collective brain power, and potential for coordinated action.

That's why we're launching and spreading the spores for Environmental Countdown. It's been in development more than a year, and with 300+ members has reached maturity. ECountdown is like a central nervous system for the environmental activist body. It allows individual activists to literally see what is happening so the right and left hands can work in concert.

A web portal that can coordinate the munching plan for earthworms? If only earthworms could clap! On this site, grassroots activists and environmental organizations alike can:

- Share videos and pictures documenting your work on environmental causes with everyone else who is dedicated to similar work across the planet
- Team up with other activists for conversation, idea sharing, planning, and action
- Share best practices
- Be inspiration, be inspired
- Get and give resources
- Earthworms that have banded together to form organizations can create their own profiles on the site and ECountdown will host and market your media for you.

In a brilliant example of this portal's power, the US Environmental Protection Agency wants to hear from earthworms like you:

 

Videos such as this one addressing environmental racism have already responded to the call to action. Are you a teacher? Work in the classroom? There's more where this came from.

Really, it's a platform for collaboration for all the earthdwellers that want to improve the health of this patch of ground that we all share. It's free, reliable, and environment-only. It's pro-munching, pro-digestion and open to all earthworms. So come get your dirt, put your own few inches of dirt onto the map, and be a part of this united, global effort to achieve authentic sustainability from the grassroots up. If you have a great environmental video, put it up. Spread the word. A new day is dawning on fresh dirt for environmental impact.
