Wow, there is less than two weeks to go before 10:10:10 and there is so much going on all around the world. Here's an update on some of the things going on in the name of 10:10 Global over the past week. Deep breath....

  • Undoubtedly the very coolest thing I've seen in the last week was the making-of video 10:10 Netherlands have put together for their amazing scouts photos. Watch it right now. Their 10:10:10 plans are pretty special too. Say hello to 10:10:10 TV, their 90 minute primetime TV special.
  • 10:10 New Zealand is getting ready for 10:10:10 - check out their detailed national plans and what they are up to specifically in Christchurch. Not sure exactly what a TrancePlant is, but it sure sounds like a lot of fun.
  • Having held our own low-carbon lunch here at our London HQ last week, I'm really looking forward to seeing how 10:10 Canada's 10:10:10 plans pan out. They're cooking up a low-carbon thanksgiving dinner. Delicious.
  • 10:10 Denmark is up and blogging. They are preparing for their launch on October 1st. A great time to join the 10:10 family!
  • A big hello to 10:10 Cyprus' new blogger Nema who has already been out and about spreading the 10:10 word on her beautiful island.
  • Meet the 10:10 Hungary team and read / hear about the British Council Hungary's green london guide.
  • A quick political round-up. 10:10 Costa Rica signed up their minister of culture, youth and sport. And in Slovenia the ministry of foreign affairs committed to 10:10. Check out photos of the event right here on Flickr.
  • And finally to the sports news. The first 10:10 footballs are currently on their way to the 10:10 office. The footballs are made out of leather off cuts, by sign up social enterprise Alive & Kicking. Big <3.
