Last Saturday was Earth Hour – from 8.30pm to 9.30pm people were expected to switch off the lights and don’t use electricity to raise awareness about climate change and environmental issues. To participate in this event, my housemates and I stayed in the dark around our kitchen table and chatted, played some board games and ate chocolate. It was so much fun and so cosy, we even extended our in-dark time to almost midnight!
The Monday before (24th March), I went to a lunch lecture from Green Swedish MP Rebecka Le Moine about biodiversity. It was organized as a part of Earth Hour week. Rebecka Le Moine explained why caring about saving biodiversity was as important as other sustainable goals in our reach for fairer environmental policies. It was very interesting!
