Five-Word Webby Acceptance Speech: Your Ideas

On Monday, National Geographic Environment will receive its People’s Voice Webby Award in the Green category for websites. Many thanks to those who voted!

The Webby organizers are requiring all winners to keep it short and sweet with a five-word acceptance speech, and we asked our followers on Twitter to help us come up with one. There are some quite original (and not as original) ideas here, but we’re still debating. I’m partial to this fact that sums up the current environmental challenges we face, and attempt to chronicle: “One planet, seven billion people.”
