How will you Spring into action and Turn over a new leaf? Make your Pledge Card and share your ideas here
- 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: 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.
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
