Plan an event with your youth
Earth Hour is an annual environmental campaign that brings attention to the effects of climate change by asking people to switch off lights at homes and businesses for an hour at 8.30 pm (20:30), local time, usually on the last Saturday of March.
We would love for the youth to get involved in this campaign because they are the future of this planet. What better way to reach out to the youth than in the church. Plan an event within your designated churches on earth hour. Earth hour aims to create awareness of people taking
On this day have a non-contact meet up session in the evening. What better way to meet up than to use technology from the comfort of your home. Gather your friends/youth group light a candle, switch off the lights and do a Zoom/Hangout meeting and use the Earth hour prayer from the website.
Dedicate earth hour to praying for the earth and discussing a sustainable future and negative environmental degradation happening on the planet. The discussion may include different topics such as: climate change, recycling, reduce and reuse. Create different themes to discuss, specifically for energy resources
