April 22 is Earth Day and this year’s theme is Environmental and Climate Literacy. And as on every day, we at Banshee Cloud wish to remind our clients that simply by using our cloud computing products and services, you are actively participating in our #SustainableComputing initiative!
Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs.
Education is the foundation of progress. Using the teach-in concept deployed at the very first Earth Day in 1970, support the movement and build an international populous to work toward the following goals:
- Build a world that internalizes environmental values and create sustainable communities for all people.
- Mobilize a global citizenry to proclaim the truth of climate change.
- Provide avenues for local environmental action.
On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies. Thousands of colleges and universities organized protests against the deterioration of the environment.
March for Science
This Earth Day, April 22, Earth Day Network and the March for Science are co-organizing a rally and teach-in on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The day’s program will include speeches and trainings with scientists and civic organizers, musical performances, and a march through the streets of Washington, D.C.
This Earth Day, join the effort to defend the vital public service role science plays in our communities and our world.
At Banshee Cloud, we work to create sustainable technology services industries in developing economies. Our goal is to preserve as much of the existing natural environment as possible, even to the point that we utilize existing structures. On the other hand, many of the industrial and land development activities in developing countries involve deforestation, toxic byproducts, and a heavy carbon footprint.
Through Sustainable Computing, we work with local government and educational institutions to drive the labor force and local industry away from the more common alternatives that impact the environment in a negative way. We work with information service industries that are more attractive from the standpoint of capital investment and profitability.
We also train workers with marketable skills that give them better earning power and less incentive to settle for previously existing jobs in destructive industries.
Just as critical is the creation of jobs that actually fill market needs, because this is the key to sustainable employment as well. To this end, our targeting large and pervasive market segments by providing unique services with exceptional value insures that the workers are able to support themselves for the long term.
