Conservation Journalism

In an effort to promote conservation efforts, Athletic Supporters is looking for journalists to submit their stories. We are looking for investigative stories that are focused on culture, conservation and athletics.

Athletic Supporters plans to establish itself as the ‘athletic gateway towards conservation and volunteering events’…Furthermore, the website will have a journalistic approach as interviews, cover stories and investigative work will be a normal routine to further promote athletics, volunteering efforts and conservation causes.

Brazil Among Us

In order for things to change an idea needs to be made, accepted and challenged.

Rio–Wikipedia

The world over has made a case to put environmental policies on the back burner. Numerous political powers are insinuating that the ‘time of change is upon us’—only to backhand these comments and the people who eagerly await. Countries such as Brazil encourage others to contribute and to do their part. However, when the time comes for strides to continue; the political and powerful shy away.

Brazil is the front runner on successful environmental policies. However, and according to www.countrystudies.us, “the government has not, on the whole, been effective in controlling damage to the environment.” Their policies have been favored, but have not necessarily taken control of their potential failures.

Sharing is Caring?

There are plenty of conservation and volunteering efforts that need exposure. Some of these efforts have thrived from social media and survived by the ‘like’,’share’,’tweet’ and ‘stumble’. Given the fact that it is relatively easy to ‘aid’ those in need behind a computer and through a simple click, the vast majority has taken to the idea and ran with it.

Plenty of these conservation and volunteering efforts have catered to the social standouts and have used them to further their campaign. What’s wrong with this? Nothing. In actuality, social media has written a page on ‘how to market’ and been a leading factor for positive change. Often times, when the appropriate amount of exposure is given to a cause, the effort soon follows. Recent causes have been supported primarily through social media, and then through fundraising. Even still, there are cases that have been given consideration through social media alone that has been proven successful.

So, it is evident that companies who use social media for further exposure are contributing towards a positive change. The problem arises not with the company but with the “social media activist” who lay claim to change with a click of the mouse.

Put simply, and avoiding debate, there is more to be done than a clicking a simple ‘like’, ‘share’, ‘tweet’ or ‘stumble’. Do spread the word through social media outlets, but also encourage participation through action.
