Lights Off for the 10th Earth Hour!

Lights Off for the 10th Earth Hour!

Earth Hour 2016 is this Saturday, March 19, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. local time. This year is a massive milestone, being the 10th year anniversary of the inaugural Earth Hour held in Sydney, Australia in 2007.

 

If you’re not familiar with Earth Hour, it’s a worldwide movement for the planet, founded and organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

 

The annual, global event aims to encourage individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour, as a symbol for their commitment to the wellbeing of our planet.

 

Since the first lights out in Australia in 2007, Earth Hour has grown to a global event, celebrated in more than 7,000 cities and towns all over the world, engaging a massive mainstream community. This annual occasion has been supported by companies and organisations around the world and endorsed by leaders and celebrities from Nelson Mandela, Miranda Kerr, Kuni Naidoo and Al Gore to Cate Blanchett, Stephen Fry and even the International Space Station!  Imagine watching the Earth “switch off” from space!

 

For more information on Earth Hour, go to the official website at https://www.earthhour.org.

 

Earth hour is just one hour in the year, but it’s important to get kids and families to work together all year round to continue thinking about how to be environmentally aware and create a better, healthier planet.

 

Spread the Word

It’s really important to get as many people as possible involved in Earth Hour… so spread the word to friends, neighbours, family, colleagues.   #earthhour on all your social media.

    La Hora del Planeta 2016 es este sábado, 19 de marzo de 8:30-9:30 p.m. hora local. Este año es un hito masivo, siendo el 10º aniversario de la primera edición de La Hora del Planeta que por primera vez se llevó a cabo en Sydney, Australia en el año 2007.

     

    Si no estás familiarizado con la Hora del Planeta, es un movimiento mundial para el planeta, fundado y organizado por el Fondo Mundial para la Naturaleza (WWF por sus siglas en inglés). El evento global anual tiene como objetivo alentar a los individuos, comunidades, hogares y empresas a que apaguen las luces que no sean esenciales durante una hora, como símbolo de su compromiso con el bienestar de nuestro planeta.

     

    Desde las primeras luces apagadas en Australia en el año 2007, La Hora del Planeta ha crecido hasta convertirse en un evento global, que se celebra en más de 7,000 ciudades y pueblos de todo el mundo, involucrando a la comunidad en general. Esta cita anual ha sido apoyada por las empresas y organizaciones de todo el mundo y respaldada por líderes y celebridades como Nelson Mandela, Miranda Kerr, Kuni Naidoo, Al Gore, Cate Blanchett, Stephen Fry e ¡inclusive por la Estación Espacial Internacional! ¡Imagínate ver la Tierra "apagarse" desde el espacio!
