Alter Space: One Small Step To Save The Planet

One of the many things mom has been teaching us since we were kids is to live an earth-friendly lifestyle. She encouraged us to join environmental organizations, she told us to lessen the use of plastics, which greatly contribute to the decaying of our planet, throw your garbage properly, use organic products, turn off appliances when not really needed, use glass of water when brushing your teeth, recycle gray water to flush the poop, plant trees, and many other stuffs. These small chores, we admit, were sometimes neglected. 
But, as we grow up we realize that doing those small steps played a BIG ROLE on saving our mother earth.
I just wanna share you a short video on how our small steps can help save our planet. 
 
"PONKAN"


The video is made by my brother, with the help of the people mentioned on credits. His concept was to unify technology, human and environment for the preservation of our planet. It displays the image of today's modern condition and our dying mother earth. Plus, see how a very small entity (ponkan) made a big bang to the society. Similar to the newly developed and environment friendly FB Game:Alter Space.

Alter Space is the 1st Filipino environmental awareness game on Facebook developed by AboitizPower to educate gamers on Carbon Footprint Reduction. It is definitely a fun way, for all ages, to play while learning some ways to reduce the effects of global warming, climate change and carbon emissions on the planet. It introduced a new mini-game called “Switch Chaser” in support of Earth Hour, a global event that encourage people around the world to shut down all non-essential lights and appliances on the last Saturday of March, from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm, according to their local time.

In “Switch Chaser”, the gamer’s avatar is required to switch off whatever appliance has been left on in his or her virtual home. Within two minutes, the games has to move around the house, using the PC arrow keys, and turn off an appliance. He/She needs to press the space bar once the avatar is beside an appliance to turn it off. The gamer must turn off as many appliances as possible within two minutes. 
A very easy, enjoyable and smart game for kids of ANY AGES. So what are you guys waiting for? Give it a try.To play, Click HERE.

  4. the concept and idea of combining or uniting techonology, human and environment was great. We, youths, must conduct ourselves into a responsible manner when it comes to waste disposal etc. so that the future generations will still witness and experience all the wonders made by God... start your realizations now, before its too late..... nice blog :)
