Earth Hour has always been for everyone. Every year, the hour of no power turns individuals into a million-strong community of people raising their voice for nature through the symbolic action of switching off our lights.  This year we have decided to do things a little differently, we celebrated Earth Hour online to allow everyone to participate from the comfort of their own homes. The focus of our campaign this year was a live broadcast on Saturday, March 27th from 6:30pm to “Lights Out” at 8:30pm featuring a youth segment, a community segment and a segment on the green economy.  During the broadcast we raised funds through pledges and donations while encouraging the viewing audience to sign up as individual members and corporate supporters as well.                                                           

    .     

 

Topics for this year’s broadcast included the following:

  • How do young people feel about the environment?
  • What Young Environmental Leaders are doing to make a difference
  • How the Eco-Schools Program is helping our young people
  • The impact of Fossil Fuel Energy Generation on our Community
  • Waste Management | Trash Collection | Recycling | Composting
  • Solar PV and Battery Storage |  What are the benefits? | What will it cost?
  • What are the long and short term benefits associated with Electric Vehicles?
  • What are Green Loans and who is currently offering them?

 

Purpose 

To strengthen our connection with nature, inspire environmental action and raise awareness about sustainable living.
