A world record for a good cause

With the teaser out we have had many people asking us...World record?
Yup! Oman is a very bio diverse place with many environmental issues, and we need to highlight that! How? By doing extraordinary things!
We have gotten a few of Oman’s top bloggers and tweeps and  they will be writing about their own take on environmental issues…..and breaking two world records at the same time J. Oman Collective Intelligence also posted about the social media record, check it out.

The bloggers will come and join us in the Enhance freezer at -20 on Thursday 21st of February at 11am, and by doing that we would have broken the world record for ‘Most amount of bloggers in a freezer’ and ‘Coldest Tweet up’
“What we’re hoping to achieve with this world record attempt is to reach as many people possible by bringing together some of the biggest local internet celebrities and spread the word on environmental protection while not being experts ourselves, we have been blessed with the opportunity to not only deliver the message from experts in the Environment Society of Oman (ESO), but to also get Oman discussing and debating the local and global issues” – Ameer Abdulhussain (Penguin)
You can also help us out! By retweeting and joining in our tweet up you will raise the profile of environmental issues and be part of the (#TweeterInAFreezer) world record!
“Oman has a diverse ecosystem and thus has a diverse range of environmental issues, through our campaigns so far we have noticed that the youth is very interested in the environmental movement and there is no better sphere to get people involved than the social media world. This will give many people the opportunity to voice their eco concerns and get a positive discussion of change”  - Bader Al Lawati (snowflake)
We know what we are focusing on; we want to know what environmental issues mean to you!

  7. Hmmm, I am not sure... Although I was born on the snowy Alps, a few years in Oman killed my ability to resist cold :)

  8. Littering and a conscious behavior towards it is a concern. Just watched "Midway" (Trailer);a film by Chris Jordan, and it makes me want to strive harder to tip the scale against littering. I volunteer with Clean Up Oman group and we're reaching out to the public really well. Over 30,000 volunteers have participated with us in some form or another in the past year alone!
