'What 'Save our planet' day is all about'
There is too little time and there are not enough environmentally engaged individuals to wait for practical environmental sustainability to develop naturally! We are headed for a crisis and it’s up to those of us who realise it, to be organised enough, to be able to plan ahead and guide others through difficult times that are pending.
‘Save our planet’ day is about just that, involving the general public in a simple, sensible and systematic way. This is done by using what resources an environmentally engaged individual can simply and reasonably access. By this means the well informed environmentally aware few can communicate that knowledge and necessary action to the majority of the general public. This is therefore a method to maximise the effectiveness of those individuals who have already taken on board the seriousness of the situation we face.
‘Save our planet’ day events are designed and constructed so that one environmentally engaged individual can set it up and run it with the help of one assistant and many helpers, (say a dozen or more), from the group providing the venue, (be that a church, other religious establishment, council, community partnership, voluntary organisation, etc.).
The author of this concept is a professional person spending approximately 60 hours per week on his primary job and 20 hours a week on his secondary job in the community. The author is not an environmental expert, merely an environmentally concerned individual realising the crisis that we all face. If the author can manage this, then surely so can you?!
An event is designed to be set up, organised and put into action within 8 weeks of inception, by one person, (on time left after 80 hours per week has already been allotted to work commitments!), i.e. most of us who are environmentally active can do this! The whole point of this concept is to present a mechanism that can be repeated easily and universally. It means we maximise our effectiveness in the short time we have left to avoid environmental catastrophe.
Over the next few weeks and months you will be given the means, via this site, to set up your own ‘Save our planet’ day event.
PLEASE HELP save our planet and become a ‘Save our planet’ day, event organiser.
As a person who truly cares for people and planet you owe it to yourself and others to have a go!
At this point I would like to thank the many organisations, (see our links and listed displayers), who have helped me……and will help you too!!
