Earth Hour 2011

What is Earth Hour?

It is the largest voluntary action ever witnessed, reaching 1.3 billion people.
It is the biggest environmental awareness campaign ever seen!

When is it?

Earth Hour takes place once every year, the last Saturday of March. This year it will be Saturday 26th from 8.30 to 9.30 PM local time.

What's the aim?

To raise environmental awareness and get us do small things in our daily lives that together can have huge impacts: in other words, to go beyond the Hour.

What does it involve?

Simply turning off your lights for 1 hour. Earth's Hour.

How useful is this?

Earth Hour is a highly "visible" symbolic act. See the pictures here.
One that millions of people can easily join in with.

And one that allows you to have fun while sending out a serious message to our politicians and governments, that says:

"I care about my planet!"

Here are some fun things to do during Earth Hour as suggested by the WWF

Beyond the Hour

Earth Hour 2011 will go beyond the Hour and beyond climate change, marking a moment where every individual, government and business can make their commitment to environmentally sustainable action for the forthcoming year. Homes, offices, government buildings and iconic landmarks will go dark to acknowledge the actions of people from all corners of the globe that go beyond the Hour.

For more info visit the Official Earth Hour website

I'm so game!!! Hope you are too!
Let's ALL celebrate our action for the planet together with the people of world & have some fun
while we're at it :)
