A Year in a Day
A Year in a Day Citizen Science Project
To respond to the urgency of the need to restore planetary health, the Blue Mountains Planetary Health Initiative’s Pluriversity is initiating a Citizen Science Project in 2022 called ‘A Year in a Day’.
We want to explore whether the small actions of individuals can have an impact if we all work together – and what those impacts might be. We’re starting from the premise that every organisation, every business, every government and every community is made up of individuals, and change has to start somewhere! We can all help one another mobilise to restore planetary health and share the many different ways it’s possible do this. By sharing and collaborating, we’ll also learn new ways to create stronger communities, new ways to create livelihoods that restore planetary health, and new ways to protect, restore and regenerate the natural systems of which we are a part, and on which the health of all life depends.
Each day someone from the Planetary Health Initiative will be taking one NEW action that we wouldn’t ordinarily take and writing about it on our blog. We’ll also be suggesting ways that Blue Mountains City Council can support you to take an action.
We’d love you to join us. If, in one day, we can inspire 365 of us to take a NEW action to restore planetary health, we will achieve the action of a whole year in one day.
Imagine if we began to do this every day of the year …. we could rapidly create a much better present and an even better future! We really would be restoring planetary health.
While you may not be able to do something every day, you can help us spread the word so that as many people as possible can contribute.
It doesn’t have to be the same 365 people every day but it does need to be a NEW action that you wouldn’t ordinarily do … and it needs to be recorded on the day you took that action.
