Uniting People to protect the planet
Conservation Halton encourages you to participate in Earth Hour at 8:30 pm on March 31.
According to the Earth Hour website, hundreds of millions of people, businesses and governments around the world unite each year to support the largest environmental event in history.
More than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2011 alone, sending a powerful message for action on climate change. It also ushered in a new era with members going Beyond the Hour to commit to lasting action for the planet. Without a doubt, it’s shown how great things can be achieved when people come together for a common cause.
To sign up to participate in Earth Hour, or to learn more visit the Earth Hour website.
