Celebrating Earth Hour Tonight!
My family are celebrating Earth Hour again this year. If you are not familiar with Earth Hour, here is a little information about it.
WHAT IS EARTH HOUR?
Earth Hour is driven by the global community’s will to protect the planet we share. Earth Hour’s exponential growth – from a single-city initiative in 2007 to a global movement across 128 countries in 2010 – is indicative of the growing desire for a cleaner, healthier world that is gathering momentum by the hour. At 8.30pm on Saturday 26 March 2011, Earth Hour will mark a moment of global contemplation to go beyond the hour; a collective commitment by individuals throughout the world to be the ongoing change they want to see in it.
Earth Hour 2011 will ask the world to:
Switch off your lights from 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Small steps add up! How will you sustain your actions beyond the hour? Visit http://www.beyondthehour.org/ and add your small steps.
Involve your children! By using a fun activity book, promo, screensavers and wallpaper they will learn how they too can help make small steps around their home and in their communities. Visit http://www.pocoyo.com/earth_hour_2011.html to find activities.
