Haninge Earth Hour

collage

There was an open house in Handen today because of Earth Hour. I visited City Hall and listened to a music concert performed by the young students from the Haninge Music School. A few organisations were at hand to inform about easy ways to save energy. The woman in the collage is Karin who runs a environmental blog called Karins Miljöblogg. She handed out an Everyday Green Ideas questionnaire that I forgot to fill in. You could travel in style between City Hall and the Cultural Centre. With horse power if you were a kid, and with pedal power if you were a bit older. The guy on the rickshaw is Josef. He runs a company called Euro Rikshaw. I thought he looked familiar and sure enough I have a photo of him taken in Stockholm a few years ago.

It is not easy to image a rush hour in Livorno with horses and rickshaws...

These look rather humorous.

I am glad to read that Sweden is also participating in Earth Hour, and to think it all started in little old Sydney down here.

Earth Hour. A great idea.

This is such a great idea. I think you Scandinavians have always been way ahead of us in terms of ecology and our planet. A beautiful collage.

I didn't know Earth Hour started in Sydney. Thanks wilbo43.

I confess, I forgot about Earth Hour. I should have written down a reminder. Does it count a little that all lights in the place were off except the room we were in?
That is a fun collage of pictures.
