On Saturday 23 March 2012 at 8:30pm, we will join hundreds of millions of people across the globe in switching off the lights of its business premises for one hour –Earth Hour, the world’s largest public environmental action. By taking part in this global ‘LIGHTS OFF’ event we will be acknowledging its commitment to operational actions that benefit the planet in the year ahead. 😀
I would like to invite you, as a valued colleague, to join me and other bloggers in what promises to be an amazing and inspiring global celebration of our collective commitment to the planet. 🙂
In the lead up to Earth Hour 2013, I plan to take a close look at ways I can waste less and reduce
my ecological footprint – both at home and in the workplace – and will share my actions with the
world on www.earthhour.org as my personal commitment to go beyond the hour for Earth Hour.
Earth Hour began as a single-city initiative – in Sydney, Australia – in 2007 and has since grown
into a global movement with hundreds of millions of people from more than 7,000 cities and
towns in 152 countries/territories across every continent switching off their lights for Earth Hour,
creating history as the world’s greatest ever environmental action.
Some of the world’s most famous man-made marvels and natural wonders, including China’s
Forbidden City, Eiffel Tower, Table Mountain, Great Pyramids of Egypt, Buckingham Palace,
Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue, Niagara and Victoria Falls, Empire State Building, Sydney
Opera House and many more global icons stood in darkness as a powerful symbol of landmark
Earth Hour will be even bigger. It is a global call to action to every individual throughout the world
to take responsibility for their environmental impact and join a growing international community
who are committed to leading global environmental change.
