earth changingWhat was your "aha" moment about the environment?

Remember when you first felt a personal connection to the Earth that changed the way you viewed the world forever? My Earth Changing Moments is a new initiative to collect stories of the “aha” moments people experience that forever connect them to the environment. Together, our stories can move people everywhere to develop a deeper connection with the planet we call home.

We want to inspire as many people as possible to think about their connection to the environment and to inspire others. If your Earth Changing Moment was meaningful to you, it will be meaningful to others – and it may help them to learn about, experience and help care for the world around us.

NEEF, www.neefusa.org, invites you to share your Earth Changing Moment through a video, short essay or photo at MyEarthChangingMoments.org.

Here are some questions to consider for your Earth Changing Moment story:

  • What, or who, inspired you to consider the environment?
  • Why is the environment important to you?
  • What is your personal message to the public about the environment?
