Imagine what modern life would be without electrical energy? Not only would be harder to see at night, you will probably be forced to find your own means of entertainment once all your devices finally run out of juice.


Here are some suggestions on how to make time fly by while you wait for the energy gods to answer your prayers:

Play with colored shadows

Perform your own shadow theatre

Relax by taking a glow-in-the-dark bath

Make a DIY glow lamp

Play a round of hopscotch

Go camping (even if it's just your backyard)

Share spooky ghost stories

Gaze at the stars


While all these activities might seem like fun, power outtages are actually a daily problem that's faced by 20% of the world's population. That's over 1.2 billion people around the world still without access to electricity, almost all of whom live in developing countries.

This is why organizations like The World Bank are pushing for electricity to be both environmentally and socially sustainable. For more information concerning this issue, click here
