Earth Day Projects on EveryBlockApr222014
Happy Earth Day! If you’re looking for a project to take part in, either today or sometime this week, there are several ways to find one on EveryBlock.
1. Check out your EveryBlock Calendar, which is accessible via the Events tab. It shows events posted by users, as well as postings from sites like Meetup. To go one step further, you can filter Neighborhood Events by clean-up: http://chicago.everyblock.com/calendar/?only=clean-up
However, keep in mind that some Earth Day events may not necessarily be clean-up related, they may be awareness or media related, such as environmental film screenings, so you may not find all events by filtering that way.
2. Search for Earth Day in the search bar. This will display events as well as neighbor messages involving Earth Day.
3. If none of the existing projects appeal to you, you can try to start your own project! Post a neighbor message in your neighborhood, gather ideas, and see what happens. It’s worth a shot. And, often times, it works.
