Saturday 30th March was ‘Earth Hour’ – we are preparing as a school to pledge support to World Earth day 2020 for their ‘A Billion Acts of Green’ challenge (https://www.earthday.org/take-action/ )
A Billion Acts of Green
The biggest lesson from the first Earth Day: When we come together, the impact can be monumental. Go green with us by making small changes that add up to making a big difference. Commit to earth-friendly acts, make more sustainable choices, reduce your carbon footprint, conserve energy and resources, collaborate on environmental projects in your community, vote for leaders committed to protect us and the environment, and share your acts of green to help educate and inspire others to join our movement! Start protecting our environment today and help us create a healthy, more sustainable future.
For our 50th Anniversary in 2020, we’re hoping to reach 3 billion acts of green. Together we’ve reached 2,688,209,868 acts of green. Let’s keep it up: Commit to your own act of green!
Individuals, businesses and cities in 188 countries and territories worldwide joined Earth Hour 2019 to speak up for nature and inspire urgent action for the environment. As Earth Hour rolled around the globe, thousands of landmarks switched off their lights in solidarity for our planet. Through the global appeal of the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, #EarthHour, #Connect2Earth and related hashtags trended in 26 countries as people across the globe generated over 2 billion impressions to show their concern for nature. Individuals pledged their support for the planet, challenging world leaders to push the preservation of nature up the global agenda. ( https://www.earthhour.org/ )
Students are going to be doing projects and tasks throughout the next year ready for 2020.
