A Community Project, the “Uh-huh” Challenge Launches on June 1st
On International Children’s Day, June 1st 2013, it marks the launch of a community project, the “Uh-Huh” Challenge. It is a 15-day challenge to unplug from digital devices for two hours each day and spend it with the family. The intention of this community project is to bring commitment and awareness of how the digital world we live in today can become a distraction and interruption.
The “Uh-huh” Challenge is inspired by Jeanne Liu, a Vancouverite and prospective Early Childhood Educator, who become curious for the automatic response “Uh-Huh” used in our daily lives. Liu created the project while participating in a Landmark leadership program. Part of the coursework was to create a project that benefits the community. Landmark is an international personal and professional growth, training and development company that offers unique educational programs that create breakthrough results for people and organizations.
“ It truly is a fun awareness game to take on for two weeks. What a great way to challenge your creativity to connect and reconnect with your family,” Liu states. “ When I had the opportunity to create a project that would make a difference in the community, this one seemed like a natural. Let the games begin and share your experience to the world!”
