A degree less on the thermostat. That is the aim of the ecological challenge “Gros Pull”, in which more than 100,000 pupils and teachers in Belgium participate. The principle ? Reduce heating and energy consumption and raise awareness of the importance of preserving the planet. A challenge proposed by the GoodPlanet association and followed by more than 600 schools across Belgium.
The challenge is quite easy to take as it consists of dressing warmly before coming to class, turning down the heating or even turning off the radiator completely.
This environmental awareness campaign will take place on Thursday, February 17, and is likely to be widely shared on social networks. A “hunting for unnecessary energy consumption” will also be organized in schools on the same day. So beware of those who forget to turn off the light or their computer screen!
The initiative is part of the extensive international operation “Good Planet Challenges”. The principle is to propose five challenges throughout the year to make young and old aware of the need to take care of the planet, be it our food practices, clothing, our ways of managing waste or even our connection. with nature.
The next two challenges will take place in the spring. The first, entitled “Everything in the water”, will be organized on March 22, the date of World Water Day, and will consist of limiting waste and promoting the consumption of this essential good.
The second, called “So we go out”, will take place on April 28. Again quite easy to take on, this challenge proposes to take advantage of an outing or to organize the activity of your choice, provided it has a link with nature.
