Earth Day (also could be referred to as The International Mother Earth Day by The UN) provides an opportunity to raise public awareness around the world to the challenges regarding the well-being of the planet and all the life it supports.
Its celebrated to remind us of our place in the world and that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance in order to to promote harmony with nature and the Earth to achieve a just balance among the economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations of humanity.
Well, we have recently set up a game server for ECO ( strangeloopgames.com/eco ) which is basically designed to be an educational tool for children to learn about the impact us humans can cause in the world, we thought it was an ideal way to do something constructive while we play the game that celebrates the world and all thats in it.
So it makes sense to combine the two and try to raise some money for the causes that aim to make every single one of use sit up and take action.
Starting on the the 22nd April, a new world is created.
Those joining in will have 7 days to save the world from the impending meteor without causing any species to become extinct.
It will solely be up to the players how to organise themselves as there will be no government involvement whatsoever.
We are hoping that people involved will stream the progress as much as they can.
During the event, each set milestone that we achieve will trigger a wheel to spin and add a random event that could cause some issues within the world.
For example: if we reach X amount, a wheel could spin and land on something like "increase global air pollution by 5%".
