The call is out for all Sunshine Coast residents to join millions around the world and turn off your lights between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 31.
Last year, in Canada alone, 15 million people turned off their lights for Earth Hour to raise awareness of climate change and the importance of conservation and of changing our habits to ensure a better future for our families and our planet.
Turn out any non-essential lights, appliances and electronics for an hour. Plan something fun with family and friends, like a walk under the stars with the kids, make a lantern, play board games by candlelight, dine in the dark, make shadow puppets, have an unplugged musical event, or spend the time in quiet meditation! Whatever you do, you’ll be participating and showing how great things can be achieved when people come together for a common cause.
Earth Hour is an international event organized by the World Wildlife Fund. Join Team Earth Hour at http://earthhour.wwf.ca.
