Task 20: Unplugged

In today’s technology-centric society, we often take the power grid for granted. We presume that when we turn on the lights, they will work. What if power was lost for an extended period of time? Have you considered how reliant you are on the assumption of power?

Think about your personal environment and how your life would be affected if you lost power for more than 10 days. Consider the things you couldn’t do that are a part of your daily routine.

DAY 20 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    Live without power from for one day, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 am. Identify your vulnerabilities and potential alternatives to meet your key needs. 

Level Up: 5 pts Live without power from Friday 5:00 pm Friday to Monday 5:00 am (or any three consecutive days). Share a video of what it was like – did you learn something? What is something you will change going forward?
