Flick and Tick

Flick off that switch tonight it's Earth Hour again. Started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change Earth Hour is your chance to show you care for our world and all the beings on it.

Earth Hour 2011 will take place today the 26th of March at 8.30PM (local time). This Earth Hour the aim is to go beyond the hour, so after the lights go back on think about what else you can do to make a difference. Together our actions add up.

Tomorrow, Sunday the 27th, if you're in the U.K. it's your chance to Tick the Box for Buddhism as you fill in the 2011 national Census. As in the last Census in 2001 this year you are again asked "What is your religion?"

For an excellent appraisal of why you should "Tick the box for Buddhism" and of why you might well be reluctant to do so read this from the Network of Buddhist Organisations.
