Invisible Dust Recommends #13 – Switch off for Earth Hour this Saturday 25th March
Join us at Invisible Dust for Earth Hour 2017 and switch off for your lights for one hour to shine a light on climate change action and show your support for our planet.
Earth Hour 2017 will take place on Saturday 25 March at 8:30 pm UK time, when millions of people in over 170 countries across the world will switch off their lights for one hour to show they care about the future of our planet and some of the world’s best known landmarks disappear from city skylines.
World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) Earth Hour, now in its tenth year, is the world’s largest demonstration of support for action on climate change.
Earth Hour was founded by WWF in Sydney in 2007, and is designed to increase awareness about energy consumption and environmental issues including rising temperatures and destruction of habitats on a global scale.
In 2016, millions around the world across 178 countries came together to show support for action to protect our planet.
350 major landmarks throughout the world, including the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building and Buckingham Palace turned off their lights in support last year.
In the UK, almost 10.5 million took part in the global blackout.
Paris was named the Global Earth Hour Capital for 2016 for is long-term vision in climate action as well as its commitment to sustainability within business, civil society and other global cities, to which it has become a role model thanks in part to holding COP21 in 2015.
The WWF Earth Hour seeks to encourage people to actively pursue a more sustainable lifestyle to reduce their carbon footprint and energy consumption.
We’re switching off. Will you?
