TED Prize update: "The Greens" turns 1!


When photographer Edward Burtynsky won the 2005 TED Prize, he wished that the TED community would help him teach kids how to live green. This month, his web cartoon series for kids, The Greens, turns 1 year old — and celebrates 3 million page views! Written and produced by WGBH in Boston (with partners including PBS, TV Ontario, National Geographic, Zerofootprint, Earthwatch Institute, Climate Cartoons, and many grassroots organizations), the site is full of great ways to help kids learn about caring for our planet. This month, a clip from The Greens will be distributed to movie theaters across the US. It’s a great message and it’s fun to share. The Greens’ producer Bill Shribman asks:

If you blog, twitter or otherwise inhabit the Interweb, please grab buttons, blurbs or embeddable video from http://www.meetthegreens.org/share/ to help this great kids’ project reach an even wider audience. For more information, you can reach the project’s producer Bill Shribman at the_greens@meetthegreens.org
