"Earth Hour 2020 is more than a symbolic event, it is a global environmental movement to stop the destruction of nature on which our health, happiness and future prosperity depends. Nature is the planet’s life support system and gives us everything we need; from the air we breathe, the water we drink, to the food we eat. The link between nature and good health has been well documented. Even spending two hours a week in nature is known to lead to better health. Nature underpins our life, health and well-being but it is in a crisis! Now is not the time to pause our collective work, but a time to respond more creatively, work more collaboratively, and listen and adapt more effectively."
- Definitely read Earth Hour's blog post about 20 things to do from the comfort of your own home. My favorites start with turning out those lights and doing things like playing board games by candlelights, embarking on some backyard camping, and diving into a glowstick scavenger hunt. There are lots of links inside the post and its a perfect place to get loads of ideas.
