Blog Action Day is about changing the conversation for one day to an issue of global importance. It is bloggers, podcasters and videocasters around the world collectively posting on the same issue at the same time, to trigger a global discussion and to bring to bear the diverse opinions and ideas of thousands of different people.
On Blog Action Day bloggers, podcasters, videocasters and their audiences will discuss poverty and will be educated and empowered to take their own small positive actions. This day is about discussion, idea generation, and education.
