Blog Action Day
Today is the first ever Blog Action Day where blogs around the world will unite to bring attention to a single issue. This year's issue is the environment.
If you are in Oman, I'd like to bring to your attention that the Environment Society of Oman (ESO) is the country's only environmental NGO. It has been around for only 3 years and has recently shifted from being a 100% volunteer managed society by hiring a full time manager. ESO has ambitious plans and has recently completed the formulation of a comprehensive 5 year strategy which will be announced soon. In order to achieve the goals and targets detailed in this strategy, ESO will require active participation from its members. If you are interested in the environment, please contact the ESO and see how you can help.
The ESO has also planned a very active calender of events for the coming year. We will be having a lecture every Saturday for the next three weeks. Our lectures are open to the public, so please don't hesitate to come.
You can also join the ESO group on Facebook to be in touch with other members and people who care about the environment. All ESO news and events will also be posted there.
