Earth Hour – this evening .

The occasion to think about the planet we live on – and acknowledge that perhaps we haven’t treated the land and sea all that well.

Communities around the world will turn off all the lights from 8:30 – 9:30 p.m. Millions of people across the globe are expected to turn off lights to recognize the importance of nature and protecting the environment.

The initiative started as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then, the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) Earth Hour has grown to become the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment.

Perhaps it has been awhile since you’ve spent an evening like this?

What do people do – sit in the dark ruminating over the state of things?

Some have decided it is a perfect occasion to have a candle light dinner – the over-riding question is – what kind of wine?

After dinner – try this?

You could
• Discus the loss of nature and the importance of nature
• Under-stand biodiversity and its importance
• Explore the role of nature as an ally in the fight against the climate crisis
• Evaluate where and how electricity is used, and the importance of turning off and unplugging as many electronic devices as possible.

I think in our household we are going to try dancing to songs we sing to each other.
