Green Race Video

This is a video created by one of my student(Jose Peña) in my subject called "Technology , environment and progress". The following paragragh was written bythe same student.

The aim is to motivate people to change the conventional bulb for fluorescent bulb.The video reflects in a metaphorical way thatconventional bulb is harmful to the energy consumption in our homes.This idea is developed through a race between the two bulbs where eachone highlights their qualities. We tried to simulate a context that shows the constant conflict among these types of bulbs.Info:Make the switch to compact florescent bulbs: According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, if every U.S. household replaced just one regular incandescent light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb, it would prevent 90 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, the equivalent of taking 7.5 million cars off the road.

Green campaigns

One of the activities that could we do to take care and help our environment is planting trees in our own neighborhood . Talk to your neighbors and visit parks or deforestated areas to plant tress or bushes. Have you run campaings before?/What type of difficulties have you faced with the campaign?
Nowadays green organizations create and run campaigns around the world. I found a famous one called Billin Tree Campaign. This is the link :
