The Global 24 hour Moratorium on Fossil Fuel Combustion
Zero Emissions Day is inspired by the possibility that we can act collectively to give our world a day off – when nothing is turned on.
The Guidelines are simple:
1. Don’t use or burn oil or gas or coal.
2. Minimize (or eliminate) the use of electricity generated by oil or gas or coal.
3. Don’t put anyone in harm’s way: essential and emergency services operate normally.
4. Do your best, have fun – enjoy the day!
Zero Emissions Day is all about having authentic conversations about our future. This is a grassroots initiative. Participation is voluntary. The September 21 moratorium coincides with The International Day of Peace as established by United Nations resolution, to be observed as a Global Ceasefire and day of peace and nonviolence.
Zero Emissions Day is an annual event.
This group has been created to spread the word worldwide and initiate this unprecedented action where everyone can take part for the benefit of all – and all future generations.
Join and participate to shrink the footprint, bank millions of barrels and divert millions of tonnes of GHG. Join also because Zero Emissions Day inspires you to come up with all sorts of ideas and ways to spend a day when the only thing that’s “turned on” is you and your community.
Share all your ideas and inspirations on the wall and start discussions. Get the word out. Tell your friends. Let’s make this happen billions times!
Thanks so much to everyone.
