This Earth Hour, select an activity from our suggestions below to celebrate the hour:
Hold upcycling/recycling workshops: Show people in your area how they can easily compost their waste, segregate garbage or reuse old stuff to lead a greener life!
Get everyone’s boots muddy: organize lake/park/community clean-up activities to show residents that it’s not very hard to take the first step.
Host a mass-plantation Drive: Let people in your area know each other better while making their area a greener place to live in.
Host a music/dance concert: Invite a dance/music troupe or your area’s local band to perform in your neighbourhood.
Have a Moonlight Party: There is nothing more beautiful than a dark night lit only by the moon’s dim rays. Give residents in your area a chance to showcase their talent by bringing out the musicians, the dancers and the artists in them- for this moonlight gathering!
Organize a Yoga Session: Yoga can recuperate the human mind and soul. A healthy body seeks a healthy environment. Invoke love for nature in people by bringing them closer to their ownselves.
Organize an Organic Lunch: Ask an organic café or restaurant to cater for your locality. You can even ask experts in the field to come and speak about the benefits of organic food. Ask other localities to join in your big event!
Screen a Film on Environment: Screen a film a few days in advance in your local community hall.
