Prabuhi Go Earth Hour Campaign

200 Prabuhis (Scout reading volunteers) in Secondary School of SMPN 5 Sukabumi went for Earth Hour Campaign to public places like malls, offices, cafes and schools. Earth Hour Project is not quite well known by most people in Indonesia. Some of them heard the project but has never been understanding the aim and the meaning of it. So, 2 days before the Earth Hour 2013, we sent this 200 young scouts to read about Earth Hour to people who didnt know nor understand the project.  We briefed them about the article in the morning, 2 hours later they went to public places in small group of 5-10 scouts.  The article is short, no more than 300 words, and it took only 5 minutes for them to read it. Since most of the people in this public places haven't heard about Earth Hour, then another 30 minutes (average) was taken for Q & A about the article.  By the end of the day, the scouts are contented and admitted to have fun in doing it. And most of the respons are positive. People appreciated the reading and happy with it.
