On March 28 we can voluntarily turn off our electricity for an hour in solidarity with the Earth’s climate, but also as an excellent pause mechanism to reflect upon our energy-saturated lifestyle. Moreover, make it a party or community event. I heard that during the last blackout in NYC some said it was one of their greatest New York experiences because people went outside and chilled together. When was the last time we did that?
We did something like this in Italy a few months ago and it was the first time I played my guitar in six months. Maybe I can succeed in actually talking to my neighbors!
