National School Lights Out Day!

9 Feb

March 30th, 2012

There a new movement brewing, one fueled by student activism.  It’s simple, yet contains a powerful message.  We want you to…

TURN OFF THE LIGHTS!

For one whole day, students will encourage their schools to leave classroom lights off.  We want to raise awareness about school-wide energy consumption and the educate communities about where our energy comes from.  We want to change daily habits and perspectives.  We want to show that by working together, students, the minds of our future generation, have the ability to make change.

BE the change in your school today!

Get involved by emailing us at: studentssavingenergy@gmail.com.  Download the Instruction Manual here.Inspired by Earth Hour 2012: http://www.earthhour.org/

    What a wonderful idea! I’ve always believed in the power & creativity of children. Give them ownership & a bit of room and they will soar and teach us a thing or too! Sharing this with my 3 grandchildren. Hopefully all 3 schools will participatel.

    Victoria It would be nice to see this listed an an event on your Activist Network page. I shared the idea with my State Legislator [iL] this morning. I assumed I would find the information on your AN site. When you have time, it would be a great addition.

      Thank you Fran, I will certainly do that!
      Also, any chance you can spread the word about this event to the schools in your area?
