How can I join the campaign
Suggestions for SevenMeter actions;
We urge you to take action to signal ”Red Alert” and protest against the low climate-ambitions of many people and politicians. We have brainstormed and made this list of ideas for SevenMeter actions. However there are hundreds of ways to take action, apart from our ideas.
Regrettably we are not able to assist you any further in your actions. But if you take describe or/and take pictures of your action, we can upload it on www.SevenMeters.net to inspire others. Just send a mail to;
Ideas for actions;
- Use Christmas decorations offensive, by making 7meter lines, writing “red alert” etc.
- Let a Helium balloon go with a line that has a blinking light attached to it. The warning light will hang under the sealing (7meter above water level if the line is long enough).
- Put a blinking light chain between your windows that head towards the street. (But be careful not to get your action confused with Christmas-decorations!)
- Stand behind live TV-reporters and let them show the sign of danger to the whole world.
- Make a 7-meter line with a red line/red tape/red cloth etc.
- Put up signs saying “7-meter water line”
- Use lamps as “Red Alert”-badges during climate-meeting at demonstrations etc.
- Throw throwies (see below) onto sealing’s or metal bars etc.
- Download some of the stickers, flyers, banners etc from our webpage www.SevenMeters.net, and hang them wherever you think needs to be brought attention to the state of emergency our climate is in.
Getting the LED lights
- Bicycle lamps: In most supermarkets and all bicycle shops you can buy cheap blinking LED bicycle lights. They usually last for around 3 days in a row. You can often change batteries in them as well.
- Throwies: A throwie consist of; One Lithium battery, one LED-bulb (that blinks automatically) and one small magnet. Tape the pieces together and you will have a blinking light that last for about two days and stick to anything magnetic (hence throwies as they can be thrown and stick to anything). Notice that throwies are have a much weaker light than bicycle lamps. Throwies cost down to 28 Eurocent a piece and can be bought at; http://www.ozhobbies.eu/led-throwies/ and elsewhere on the internet.
- Light chains – like the ones for Christmas. But be careful not to get your action confused with Christmas-decorations!
