Operation Unplug Texas
Organized by: Operation Unplug Texas
Operation Unplug Texas is dedicated to informing Texans about environmental events and issues. Our goal is to raise environmental awareness and appreciation through two strategies: First, we scour the internet for environmental and conservation events happening all around the state. By informing the public about events happening near them, we hope to encourage participation. Second, we make trustworthy educational information available to the public through social media. We have plans to create educational videos and events as well. Overall, Operation Unplug Texas is a mission to connect adults and kids with nature by disconnecting from them from the grid. While this is obviously ironic, the best way to connect with the largest amount of people who can make the largest amount of change is social media.
This generation has many challenges to face if we hope to conserve what is left of this beautiful planet. While the conservation movement is gaining traction in both the public and private sectors, we still have a lot of work do to. As technology advances, Millenials and Post-Millenials are constantly bombarded with information via social media sites. Unfortunately, this information is not always factual or beneficial in any way. I believe an influential and trustworthy online presence is the key to engaging the current and future generations into action for the good of the environment.
Thank you for your support!
