With less than two weeks left, ONE Campus Challenge chapters across the country are feverishly working to finish up ONE Campus Challenge 2: EmPower. The challenge asks ONE campuses to show their fellow students what life would be like without reliable electricity – and take action to bring energy to 50 million Africans for the first time.
Several campuses have already completed the challenge – so we wanted to highlight a few of events. These students got REALLY creative so you might want to steal a few of these ideas if your campus hasn’t started yet! Or you can check out my previous post on how to rock this challenge here.
Beloit College placed sticky notes on items that require electricity throughout campus to remind students what powers their daily necessities.
Carthage College conducted a Halloween themed photo petition on energy poverty, and then tweeted these photos to their representatives asking them to support the Electrify Africa bill.
University of Iowa held a striking candlelit study night to experience firsthand what it’s like to live without electricity access, which got promoted in the local newspaper.
Tulane University held a creative studying under street lamps event, where they even had a guest performance.
Great job, ONE Campus! We can’t wait to see what the rest of you guys do!
