Earth Hour Saturday 25 March 20:30
Earth Hour is a global movement, bringing millions together across the world to call for greater action to protect our amazing planet. Last year a record 178 countries took part – a number that rises every year. Earth House is now a feature of the annual cycle of events for many cities, from the Forbidden City of Beijing to the Sydney Opera House. I am told that Buckingham Palace, the Eiffel Tower and many cathedrals will take part, along with many cities, towns and communities. All will switch out their lights FOR ONE HOUR to join a global show of support for action on climate.
Our world is changing fast. It has been the hottest year on record for the third year in a row and nearly 1 in 6 species are at risk of extinction from climate change. It has never been so important to show support for action on climate change.
All you have to do is switch off your lights, turn off the TV, the radio, the computer and even your mobile phone and enjoy a quiet candle-lit hour in solidarity with our endangered world. You can meditate or pray, read a poem and chill out. Collectively this will make a huge difference.
You can sign up www.wwf.org.uk/earthhour so that a record can be kept of all those taking part.
Please join in and switch off for ONE HOUR.
