I am just one person but I love my planet! What can I do this Earth Hour?
Create your own Event!
Do you like organizing parties, marches, concerts or even simple family get-togethers? Do you have your own ideas for what you can do this Earth Hour to make people more sensitive to climate change? Then select an activity below to tell us how, when and where you are going to celebrate the hour:
Screen a film for your friends: Too lazy to go out? Switch off all lights and create a cinema hall experience at your place. Invite friends and colleagues over too!
Cook for your friends: Has your inner chef had a chance to reveal itself yet? This could be your time to show your friends/family/colleagues that you can cook a hearty and healthy meal for them. In spirit of the occasion – go organic too!
Out on the road for a cause – Go around town with your friends to interview people on what they think about climate change and going solar! Send us your film by 7 pm on Saturday, 19 March and the best ones will be screened on our social media!
Be the Yogi – Organise a yoga session in your locality during the day to bring people closer to nature. Ask all attendees to switch off lights later in the evening and help change climate change!
Drift to the Dark Side: “Ink-black darkness filled the street and fear filled my heart. As far as one could see there was coal-blackness. Not a human face, nor a flicker of light could be seen. And then the strangest sound of ankle-bells….” Have a horror show at your own place and cook up the scariest stories to run a chill down everyone’s spine!
Get your hands dirty, your boots muddy – The revolution begins at home. Gather people to clean parks/ponds/lakes/other areas in your neighborhood. Show the world that you don’t only look to others to act but can stand up for what you believe in!
Party in the Park: None of your friends know till now how brilliant a party-thrower you are! And how innovative too! Who, but you, could have thought of throwing a party under the moonlight, out in the park with your friends and family? Be environment-friendly and use your own crockery and cutlery which you can wash back at home.
Candle-Light Dinner: We know it’s an old idea. But it’s for you, the die-hard romantic, who loves a serene, calm and peaceful dinner over anything else!
Least but not the last, don’t forget to tell us what you are doing for Earth Hour 2017. We will ensure that everyone knows about the great things you’ve done for our planet.
