July 7 really promises to be a big day for environmental awareness. Apart from the highly anticipated (that may be an understatement) Live Earth, another 24-hour concert will be taking place in the virtual world as well, in Zwinktopia, to be specific. Stage Z will feature musical performances, short documentaries, and interviews and will be hosted by celebrities such as Kelly Rowland, Teddy Geiger, Tina Fey, and even Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
The Zwinktopia blog zwINK explains that Stage Z “is a 24-hour concert event that will take place in Zwinktopia on July 7th, 2007. The event will coincide with Live Earth and was designed to raise awareness of the global warming epidemic and need for climate control reform.”
Seems kind of like an unusual event to me, but anything that can get people to really sit up and pay attention to the big issues is all right by me. Any Zwinky members here? We’d love to hear from you about how the event turns out.
