School’s out Friday for Blog Action Day

Late, late, late. I was so tired after returning from New South Wales last night that I couldn’t get to School’s out Friday. This morning I remembered it was Blog Action Day, so I’m hoping this post makes it into the 15th of October in a timezone somewhere in the world!

The theme for this year is Water;

Blog Action Day is an annual event held every October 15 that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking a global discussion and driving collective action.

I used this video a couple of years ago in a post, but it’s stuck in my memory as an excellent solution to the problems in developing countries. The aquaduct filtration vehicle was the winning entry in the Innovate or Die contest put on by Google and Specialized. The contest challenge was to build a pedal powered machine that has environmental impact.

Hope it makes the 15th of October deadline!!
