Blog Action Day 09

Blog Action Day adalah kegiatan tahunan yang dilaksanakan pada 15 Oktober. Pada saat itu seluruh blogger di dunia bersama-sama menulis  topic yang sama pada hari yang sama. Bisa di bilang saat itulah pikiran dari seluruh dunia di curahkan untuk memikirkan masalah yang sama, bisa dibayangkan berapa solusi yang bisa di peroleh?? tentu akan sangat amat banyak sekali!! :P
Kegiatan ini merupakan salah satu ajang terbesar blogfest (festival blog) untuk langkah lebih baik yang bertujuan untuk mengajak dan memikirkan isu-isu penting melalui web.
Tahun ini BAD mengambil topic tentang "climate change" dan diikuti lebih dari
4,000 bloggers dari  123 countries yang terdaftar, termasuk banyak dari blog-blog terbesar di dunia.
Topic yang diambil bertujuan memanfaatkan BAD 2009 sebagai "the largest social change event" di dunia maya. Tentunya mengenai masalah iklim.  Selain itu, kegiatan  bertujuan menjadikan Blog action Day 2009 sebagai bentuk kepedulian global terhadap krisis iklim.
Sebagai hasil dari event ini, ada kurang lebih 45 hal yang bisa kita lakukan tentang perubahan iklim
