Top 10 Tips for your own Earth Hour event
Here are some tips for you to host your own Earth Hour event around the country
Invite your friends, family, neighbours or community to bring a plate of their favourite dish or favourite food memory: BBQ sausage sangers, Bubble-O-Bills, Chicken Parma, Women’s Weekly birthday cakes (remember them?!), Fairy Bread, Party Pies...you get the picture. You could even include a fancy dress angle, if you’re feeling adventurous.
Are there any budding musicians in your community? Partner with a local cafe and host an evening of acoustic music by candlelight. You can also feature the special 20-minute Earth Hour fun documentary on how food and farming is being affected by climate change.
Did you know, left unchecked, global warming will negatively affect beer production? Noooooooooo!
How about a “Save the Ales” party or pub quiz? Host this one at a local pub and we can supply some cheeky environmentally-themed questions. More frequent and severe droughts due to climate change will affect to grain-growing regions all over the world which affects the quality of the barley and hops needed to make beer - so drink up!
While the lights are out, head outside or visit a local observatory to enjoy the wonder of the darkened night sky. It’s a beautiful way to celebrate our planet.
Go for a short ride to see the lights out in your city or town followed by a few drinks by candlelight. Make sure you contact the businesses and restaurants along your cycle route beforehand to remind them to turn their lights off from 8.30 - 9.30 pm.
Encourage your friends and community to use fresh Aussie ingredients such as bananas or berries to make creative and tasty treats. Consider some delectable cupcakes with this message.
Host a screening of Earth Hour’s 2015 short documentary with messages from ambassadors like Bindi Irwin. Combine this with an environmentally themed movie marathon (think Fern Gully, Wall-E, Avatar or An Inconvenient Truth).
Do you love Italian food? All the key ingredients in one of our most loved dishes are affected by rising temperatures and increasing extreme weather; wheat for pasta, beef & tomatoes for the sauce and dairy used for parmesan cheese.
Host a candlelit “Save the Spag Bol” dinner and commit to tackle climate change for the sake of its future. You could also reach out to local Italian restaurants or Italian community groups to get them involved, too.
Wine is also being affected by climate change. Explore our internationally renowned wines by candlelight. Encourage friends and family to bring bottle from boutique producers around the country and support the winegrowers and Aussie grapes!
