Earth Days activated every Equinox


You can make your Pledge Card and share your ideas HERE (Click!)

altogether we’re prepared!

And this is not the only way Equinoxes* can help us ‘do our bit’ and rise to the challenge of the climate crisis. They have unique qualities that can revolutionise Earth Days in all sorts of ways…

  • 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 harmonise with academic and financial years
  • Summer & Winter: two energy-use patterns emerge
  • Daylight Saving: equinoctial logic solves the conundrum
  • Logo: the universal maths of Phi & Fibonacci embedded – a great educational add-on
  • Heuristic: It’s all about finding out and taking responsibility. (H)Eureka!

Will you be an Early Adopter and take the EQ four-fold pledge each equinox? 

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.
EQ has great and good potential. I like the big simple truth it stems from and pays into
