I - Find a theme on David Suzuki's site http://davidsuzuki.org . (there you will read about it, acquire the vocabulary that is needed for your theme and get ideas for your poster or creation) - here you will find more on David Suzuki's life. His daughter Severn Suzuki is also an environmental activist who has urged people worldwide to take more responsibility over their actions. Watch her speaking at the age of 12 at the Eco-92 Congress in Rio
Look a the fantastic multimedia work students in Taiwan did on Global Warming.

III - Find a photograph (MUST be either from Flickr CC or a royalty-free photo) to illustrate your theme and the quotation you have chosen.

IV - Paste all this on a wiki page (open navigation bar, write Poster, highlight it, link it and give the name poster to the page, save)
Remember to get the sources of the photos and the author of the quotation. If it is a proverb without an author, indicate the origin (French, African, etc)

V - Write a short explanation of how you think the quote and the photo fit the theme you have chosen (the relationship between them) and what your goal in choosing them is.

VI - Once this is done, post the poster (or calendar page) in your Flickr account acknowledging the source (photo) and blog it directly to your Wordpress account, writing your explanation and reasons for choosing the quote , catchphrase and photo.
