St Joseph International, Singapore used Hazel (the pledge tyre) to promote Earth Day on 22 April 2014. Students/teachers competed to see how fast they could pull the tyre over 25 metres.
This was a short distance, and a good thing too. Hazel was roughed about as the students and teachers examined the effort to creating a sustainable future.
1. One person can move sustainability easily by themselves but as time goes by might find motivation to be an issue
2. Sometimes one person in a team has to do more than the other in order to move sustainability along. This can occur in teams where one person finds him/herself doing the work for all the others! It will become a struggle for the person who becomes the donkey!
3. Trying to be sustainable can have all types of obstacles, but if we work as a team we can move mountains!
Note: The pictures were compiled in YouTube's video editor. So the video ends a little abruptly. Better to create these types of videos in PowerPoint or Movie Maker! Will allow you to add introductions and endings for a more complete video.
Pictures were provided by Margaretha from SJI. (thank you)
