Why pay for fireworks when we can turn off the city lights?
Let's do this for NYE 2022
Take it further
Take it even further
Reasons why we are doing this
Particle pollution in the air has been found to eventually deposit on the ground and get washed into lakes and rivers.
Ask that your city not resort to fireworks or light shows on New Year's Eve, and instead turn off all unnecessary city lights.
Plan to get together with other living beings in your community and revel together in the wonder that is the night sky.
Turn off your own unnecessary electronic devices, and enjoy your free digital detox. Try to connect with loved ones far away in spirit.
Think of everyone else you do not know on earth, and recognize how the universe and this planet is our shared home.
Ask yourself what you can do this calendar year to make life more bearable for other living beings.
Share with us what you decided to do and update us on the challenges you faced and your progress.

We are a community-led environmental and social initiative currently based in the United Arab Emirates and registered as ahlanwasahlan think tank llc.
Our work involves research, advocacy, campaigning and community activations. Even though the work that we do is not-for-profit, because of local regulations we are unable to accept donations and have to rely on optional membership fees, activity fees and consultancy work to cover our operating expenses. We are operating on very modest means and are doing the best we can with the resources currently at our disposal to elevate our collective sense of environmental consciousness and social responsibility.
How about yourself? Would love to hear from you:
