Petition Action

A yearly 2 week period where everything shuts down to let the world heal

Petition Details

All non essential travel including vehicular, public transport, flights and cruises, non essential businesses, schools, pubs, bars, restaurants, to be closed, to reduce our carbon footprint and let the earth heal, to increase social consciousness and community spirit and to promote family focus

Additional Information

We have already seen in the short space of time during the Covid-19 pandemic, improvements in pollution levels around the world (Venice canals cleaner for example), communities are banding together and supporting each other more and families are spending more time with each other outside of regular holiday periods. We have to commit to reducing our carbon footprint and this episode, albeit under drastic measures, has shown that a positive can come out of reduced public activity.
