and so it is...

the Earth Hour past. firstly, we would like to thank all of you who followed our petition. thus, together we managed to classify Romania on top ten :), almost 200 people having signed up (out of 1,100 from around the country).

those who still believe in such actions, had a great time celebrating this green event. we even forgot to turn ON our lights at 9 o'clock :) besides the feeling we are part of the world community, we had also experienced that lack of electricity bring people closer. we played Macao tiganesc, a card game which some of us haven't played since we were kids... and we've exchanged jokes (bancuri). What did You do? Apart of this quality time, you actually can use your individual power to 'make a difference'. No need to wait for others, just take action against this...

Of course there were a bunch of skeptics, who wanted to participate in their own way at the event :) Some of them replying us to our reminder sent a few minutes before 8 o'clock, such as: 'i turned it off, as i just left the house' or 'don't forget to unplug the fridge!' or (at 9 o'clock) 'turn on your lights!" :D

As long as the
people didn't remain cold-livered, we are content. As an averse example, this article welcomes the project having a positive approach on the subject. Many thanks to Ioana Mitu for her support! :)

Well... if you feel to join us in the future, you can always sign up for the 2009 EH

Until then, you can find here some images on the 2008 event or here some of the stories of EH around the world.
