NB: This sample Pledge Card predates eQ’s new logo
How will you Spring into action and Turn over a new leaf? Equinoxes underpin these slogans and pledges: their use as Earth Days can help unite us in tackling the challenge of the biosphere/climate crisis:
- Equinoxes are Earth’s fixed events of Spring and Autumn*. They are planet events
- Day and night is the same across the globe at equinox. We are equal under the sun**
This – an irrefutable fact and an irresistible metaphor – is the logical and appealing twin base for eQ, from which much else flows:
- Neutral by definition. Precious in polarised times. Seasonal moments of balance
- Biannual twins double up on annual action, accelerate change
- Zoom out into space – then back. Boundaries disappear – more unites us than divides
Other practical applications include
- Audit points harmonised with academic / financial years
- Summer & winter: two energy-use patterns
- Daylight saving: equinoctial logic solves this
- Logo: the universal maths of Phi & Fibonacci…
- Heuristic: self-discovery leads to taking responsibility and then action. (H)Eureka!
Will you be an Early Adopter and take the eQ four-fold pledge each equinox? You can share ideas here.
There will be tailored online resources, reinforced with targets, games and challenges to help your Pledge Card become a six-monthly habit, accelerating your journey to a sustainable post-carbon future.
