"Memes" for Peace and Planet - Promoting the April 24-26, 2015 events

This week, particularly on Tuesday, I'll be using social media to help generate excitement for the Peace and Planet events taking place April 24-26, 2015, in New York City.

In particular, there is a conference taking place both days, and the speaker list is now being release - see

I'm learning, along with everyone else, about good ways to get the message out on social media. My contribution this week will be to create "memes" (graphic + text) that can be conveniently shared by others on Twitter and Facebook.

(Thanks to David Swanson, I now have some ideal dimensions for memes: Twitter: 1024 x 512; Facebook (shared image): 1,200 x 630)

Herewith my growing set of "memes" for the Peace and Planet conference
