Earth Hour - What will you do Saturday March 29 from 8:30 to 9:30pm?
In Nigeria, it motivated twelve young people to walk over three thousand kilometres through Nigeria, Niger, Mali, the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo and Benin, finishing in Nigeria’s financial capital, Lagos—and all along the way, it motivated them to promote a culture of peace and to create awareness about environmental sustainability.
In Tahiti, it motivated people to organize a huge concert in the main stadium —but instead of needing a ticket, people have to bring recyclable waste to get access, entering on a red carpet where they will be photographed sorting the waste materials they brought.
In Isfahan, Iran, it motivated people to create a massive Earth Hour logo in the dried-out riverbed of the Zayanderud River, whose water has been affected by climate change and diverted to the city of Yazd, threatening the livelihoods of Isfahan’s farmers and leaving the once-famous river dry.
Here in British Columbia we have been given a far easier challenge—simply to turn out the lights for an hour. By saving energy for an hour, we are supposed to show our commitment to the wider goals of tackling climate change, saving threatened species, and generally creating a better future.
But what if the code inspired us to do more?
We welcome your thoughts—and more importantly, your actions. What will you do this Saturday evening, motivated by the code?
Send you stories to email@example.com, and next week we will bring you the best.
