Introduction to the NegaWatt Revolution by Matthias Gelber

I have lived in Malaysia for over ten years, and throughout those years, I have started various movements to raise awareness on the current state of our environment. However, I have not been able to engage a large number of volunteers to participate in those movements. For the efforts that were successful, the results were often difficult to measure. I want to change that.

I have lived in Malaysia for over ten years, and throughout those years, I have started various movements to raise awareness on the current state of our environment.

Who can make a difference?

You can! That’s right – YOU! Anyone and everyone, be it individuals, communities or businesses can be a part of the Revolution’s efforts to help Malaysia achieve its climate change targets and save the planet in the long run.

How do I participate?

You can participate by signing up to Welectricity, a free online service that helps you to keep track and reduce your energy consumption at home. By uploading your energy consumption onto this online service, you will be able to calculate how much energy you have saved, as well as how much carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions you have reduced in doing so. Welectricity also allows you to share your experiences and tips on reducing energy consumption, and compare your monthly energy consumption with your friends.

Universities and colleges can participate by inviting us for a talk on the Negawatt Revolution while businesses can participate having us engage your company and its employees to join the Revolution.

When can I start?

The Negawatt Revolution will begin following its launch on April 21, to be held at Mindvalley in Kuala Lumpur just in time for Earth Day. Our website will also go live following the launch, but you can get ready for the Revolution right now by signing up to be a Negawatter at negawattrevolution.org!
