“十年树木,百年树人”指的是培养人才这回事。然而,种树却也是爱地球的一种做法。 前人种树,后人纳凉这道理我从小就学会,而我也一直很想亲自种下一棵树,为环境、为下一代做一点小小的事。 当《财经追击》监制建议我为今年的“地球一小时”活动画幅画时,我就想到树的题材。 画中有两颗树,大树为小树遮荫,有抚育幼苗的意思。而小树位于画中央,是说未来的主人翁是下一代,他们才是主角。 小猫在树荫下乘凉,没什么特别意思,主要因为我喜欢猫。绿树、阳光、草地、小动物,是我想象美好的地球应该有的画面。 地球一小时 当然,这幅画的主题也和我接受“地球一小时”的挑战有关联。 今年的活动要求我们这些活动支持者向周围的人发出一项环保挑战(I will if you will),我把它译为“你行,我也行”。 这个所谓的挑战其实是向周围的人建议一项环保行为,例如洗冷水澡、搭公共交通上班、不开冷气等等。而如果身边的人做到了,我就履行一项环保承诺,例如几个月洗冷水澡、几个月搭公共交通上班、几个月不开冷气等等。 我想呀想,怎样履行一项自己做得到而又能同时宣扬环保概念的承诺。 我想到种树,因为这是我很想做的一件事。接着我又想身边的人可以怎样帮我完成这项任务,所以我就想到呼吁朋友们到场参与“地球一小时”的熄灯活动。 每个人环保的方法不同,支持世界自然基金会(WWF)这个年度活动只是其中一种方式。亲自到现场来除了可以向世界自然基金会推动环保工作的人员打打气,也可以和朋友家人相约一起从事户外活动,我想这应该是好的主意。 所以,如果你这个星期六(31/3/12)有空,不妨到义安城的露天广场(Civic Plaza)参与“地球一小时”的活动。 支持我种树的朋友,可以到WWF登记处附近找我,在我准备的册子上留言并签名。每50份留言和签名,我将种一棵树。收集留言的时间限于6pm-6:45pm,因为过后WWF就要展开正式活动了。 植树计划 在新加坡,要种树该怎么进行呢?我想到国家公园局的植树计划,它由公园局属下的花园城市基金负责管理。 根据计划,植树是通过捐款的方式进行。种一棵树的捐款是200新元,捐...
