If you find talking about the environment, the adverse effects of electricity and plastic, boring….. then you MUST read this. Do you suppose we would get unpolluted air, water and Earth, on a silver platter? Have you even an ounce of concern about the gravest issue we face today?…. no, it isn’t terrorism….. it is ‘SAVING THE EARTH’. If you fail to do that, we won’t need strikes to wipe down camps….. WE WILL ALL WIPE OURSELVES OUT!…So, yes, there are bigger problems than ‘ where to go drinking tonight’ and ‘why isn’t he calling?’ !
The iconic monuments and buildings across the country would be switched off to mark the movement on the night of Earth Hour, which had started as a symbolic lights-out event in Sydney back in 2007. On March 30, the world will witness 24 of the most inspiring hours for the environment, as people around the world come together for WWF’s Earth Hour. From Singapore to Santiago and Nairobi to New York, millions will unite, switch off their lights and speak up on why nature matters. For me, each of them is a scientist.
The theme for Earth Hour 2019 is “Change the Way We Live”. By symbolically switching off the lights at 8:30p.m on 30 March 2019, we focus our efforts on preserving the earth’s biodiversity. What better way to celebrate than with the electrifying energy of Earth Hour as it sweeps across the planet? Our current lifestyles are not sustainable for us as well as the planet we call home.
Every year, on Earth Hour, people across the world switch off non-essential lights for an hour to take a stand for the environment. This year, Earth Hour is the launch of the GIVE UP movement. It’s time to give up wasteful behaviour and consumption without thought.GIVING UP is about our power to change the world.
Every year millions of people, businesses and landmarks set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights and make noise for the Earth Hour movement. From Singapore to Santiago and Nairobi to New York, millions will unite, switch off their lights and speak up on why nature matters to them.
You can celebrate Earth Hour in any way you want. It’s entirely in your hands. Want to keep it simple? You could host a candle-lit dinner, go stargazing, or simply switch off your lights for an hour.
Earth Hour 2018-2020 endeavours to spark never-before-had conversations on the loss of nature and the urgent need to protect it. Remember to switch off in solidarity to secure nature and your home: 30 March, 8:30pm your time.
