With over 70 events showcasing permaculture happening around Australia this Sunday, it’s going to be a fantastic day with our co-operative efforts gaining maximum public and media attention. Local and national newspapers and radio are certainly picking up on this. Various permies have already done several interviews about the day — I’ve done a few and expect to do many more over the next few days. Be prepared just in case you are also contacted as I have been referring media to local people running specific events. There is a permaculture event in every state except the Northern Territory.
Media releases have gone out to all metropolitan and regional TV, radio and newspapers, plus news agencies and talkback radio. In total, 1136 emails to date!
Sydney taxis have been promoting the day for the past few weeks. We expect to reach over 1 million people. Thousands of flyers and posters have been distributed around Australia and it has been promoted widely on facebook and other social media.
An important request.
If you haven’t registered your event please do so as the whole point about NPD is that it is a unified, cooperative, coordinated event to attract maximum impact and media attention to permaculture. Please take lots of pictures on the day. After the event, please email me any photos, newspaper articles or stories of the day for the NPD website and NPD archives. This will be passed on to next year’s NPD coordinator.
Please contact me if you need any further info. Thanks for your participation and co-operation. Whatever you’re doing on the day, have a happy one, showcasing permaculture, sharing our passion and celebrating our success.
NPD Coordinator 2011
