SA: Earth Hour 2016

Earth hour was an event which took place on the 19th of Saturday from 8:30pm to 9:30pm. Everybody who joined the event would turn off all their lights from 8:30 to 9:30. For this whole hour the world would be black. For this Service and Action project we had to raise awareness on global warming and climate change, by using social media to promote Earth Hour. We hope to get as many people involved as possible. In class we watched the promotional video on the World Wide Fund for Nature website.

I shared this promotional video on my timeline on facebook to raise more awareness, I also found the event on facebook and invited as many people as possible until the site block me from inviting anymore people. In total I think I invited about 400 people to the event. By doing this it shows my commitment to the cause and that I value the world’s environmental issues.

At 8:30 I turned off all the light in my house and I took a video of my family; I sitting in the dark. I thought it was quite an easy challenge as such a small change in our daily life can have such a big effect on the world.
