NB: This sample Pledge Card predates EQ’s new logo
How will you Spring into action and Turn over a new leaf? Equinoxes give new life to these slogans. Using them for your twin Earth Day pledges can unite and energise us all into tackling the biosphere/climate crisis.
- Equinoxes are precise moments in Earth’s annual orbit*. They are planet events when
- Day and night is the same across the globe. So at equinox we are equal under the sun**
This – an irrefutable fact and an irresistible metaphor – is the logical and appealing base for EQ, from which much else flows:
- Neutral – by definition. Precious in polarised times. Seasonal moments of balance
- Biannual – two equinoxes double up action, accelerating change
- Zoom tool – at global scale, boundaries disappear & more unites us than divides
Other practical applications include
- Audit points harmonise well with academic / financial years
- Summer & winter: two energy-use patterns revealed
- Daylight saving: equinoctial logic would improve this – for free!
EQ’s earth-based logic and philosophy challenges and informs
- Truth Lies and Delusion: “Save the Planet”? The planet’s fine, it’s us…
- Logo: the universal maths of Phi & Fibonacci embedded
- Heuristic-(H)Eureka!: taking responsibility and action comes easier after the clarity of understanding.
Will you be an Early Adopter and take the EQ four-fold pledge each equinox? You can share ideas on this linked page.
There will be tailored online resources, reinforced with targets, games and challenges to help your Pledge Card become a six-monthly habit, your life changes permanent and accelerate your journey to a sustainable post-carbon future.
altogether we’re prepared!
EQ has great and good potential.
I like the big simple truth it stems from and pays into
A fascinating and imaginative initiative
