PFG’s 1.5 Lifestyle Campaign which will be held saturday April 22 is now moved to the Marian Academy ground .
Embracing this year’s Earth Day theme, “Investing in Our Planet,” the PGF said it will be adopting more sustainable and environmentally conscious lifestyles.
Human behaviour is the beginning and end of the climate crisis. Incessant accumulation of consumer goods has devastated natural resources, creating global warming and the climate crisis. Constantly stressed by anxiety about our possessions and appearance, we relieve the stress by consuming things we don’t need and through drugs, liquor and other disabling behaviour.
The 1.5 Lifestyle campaign challenges this destructive way of living by fostering pathways to a more unified, healthier, resilient, inclusive youth-led future.
The event will feature a mini expo, games, paint by numbers mural, music, and other exciting activities aimed at educating. With a Zero-Plastic Policy in place, this environmentally conscious event promises to be both fun and educational for attendees of all ages. And with schools like Friendship Secondary, New Amsterdam Multilateral, Santa Rosa Primary, Brickdam Secondary, Bygeval Secondary, and Seafield Primary School, already on board show-casing their commitment to a 1.5Lifestyle, it’s sure to be an event to remember.
“We are excited to commemorate Earth Day 2023 with an event that celebrates our planet and demonstrates how working and taking decisions together empowers us all individually as well as confronting the Climate Crisis,” said Benita Davis, the Project Coordinator.
“Our organisation has always focused on projects that have a direct impact on youths, and we are thrilled to have so many schools participate in this event.”
