Light Green Change
Posted by Simon on September 16, 2010
I lead a small global cross-functional team that is tasked with helping our company learn about, and change our behaviors regarding, the environment. Trouble is I have a cynical tendency and talking about “care for the environment” can seem so turgid sometimes it makes me want to leave lights on everywhere, drive the car when I could walk, and basically do everything I’m not supposed to do. That’s what happens, in our distorted humanity, when faced with moralistic rules but no grace and love. And avid Greeners do seem to take themselves a little too seriously, even if the apocalypse IS coming.
Anyway, the team decided to lighten up a bit by creating this movie ahead of a ‘green competition’ we ran in conjunction with a corporation-wide Green Week initiative. We had a laugh making it at least. And it really seems to have had an effect on people’s behavior, amazingly enough.
