What is Save Our Planet Day?

Sub Menu:
Save Our Planet Day: How do I get involved?: What is Save Our Planet Day?: Global Problem: About Save Our Planet: Contact Save Our Planet Day: What 'Save our planet' day is all about: 8-8-8:

It is a co-ordinated organised event, repeatable yearly and globally, utilising an object found locally and throughout the world.

It is a day when you can find out what you can do to help combat climate change brought about by increased CO2 emissions.

Information to help you change your lifestyle, to benefit the world in tackling global warming from excessive CO2 production, will be available at participating venues throughout the land.

This information will be available at conservation sites, estate agents, local community halls and leisure centres of the areas participating.
They are indicated by the green and white ribbons tied outside their entrances.

Additionally any traffic light that is going to be attended on the day, (in 2008 this will be the 7th July i.e. 8 – 8 – 08 ), will have the green and white ribbons tied to it up to 1 week before the event.

On the day that traffic light will be attended between 12 noon and 1.oo p.m. when leaflets and information will be available to be distributed to any that wish it. All you have to do is go to your nearest traffic light that shows the ribbons fluttering and you will be able to get the information that is available.

In 2008 this will be available in many places. It is, however, the first of 6 annual ‘Save our planet’ days. Each day is easy to remember in date:
7 – 7 – 07, 8 – 8 -08, 9 – 9 – 09, 10 – 10 – 10, 11 – 11 – 11 and 12 – 12 -12.
Each year more and more places will get involved.
The public globally will get the opportunity to receive information on climate change and how to help tackle it.

Each year as the scheme increases in popularity and availability, more and more of the world’s population will get the opportunity to help tackle this problem in a co-ordinated, global response; for this problem is a GLOBAL problem and requires GLOBAL action in response.

By this means outlined we have a method of co-ordinating humanity across the world by using a universal symbol and a globally distributed, easily recognised distribution point.

The simple traffic light – globally accepted – already present and distributed throughout the world, especially in areas of high CO2 output – universal in its use – is utilised to co-ordinate our response to global warming.

At the same time it performs the duty of a reminder for us to change our ways whenever we see one. The lights symbolising the message across the globe of:
RED = Stop War (stop war, because war is the greatest waste of all)
AMBER = change to
GREEN = a Green Planet .

By using something that already exists as a means to focus our GLOBAL response to climate change, we have a chance to co-ordinate the necessary action.
In summary:
Climate change is a GLOBAL problem .
We can ONLY tackle it if we act GLOBALLY.
The traffic light and its symbolised message is the means to achieve this.
We need to have a simple way to co-ordinate, organise and respond to the threat global warming provides.
We need to do this in a short space of time and in a manner simple and easily repeatable throughout all the nations of the world.

‘Save our planet’ day offersthe opportunity to do just that.
6 easily remembered dates.
