Tomorrow is Earth Hour: Switch Off The Lights!
Here’s a meaningful thing you can do for our children’s future and the planet. All over the planet tomorrow, people, landmarks, companies and buildings are going to switch off their lights from 8.30 to 9.30pm local time.
Expect the darkest starry (weather permitting) night of the year. The new moon was just a few days ago. Time for a candlelit evening!Earth Hour is a WWF sponsored event and each light out is a vote for Earth. WWF is hoping to be able to reach 1 billion votes as the number of votes will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.
Find out about events, participants and parties in San Francisco, in France, or in Bangkok (my three home places – sort of).
Here are a few other ideas:
– going to a party? bring candles and surprise your host with a candlelit party
– staying home? light candles and play games by candlelight with your friends/children
– going out? there are great Earth friendly events starting at 5pm all over San Francisco.
– get kids involved.
So this Saturday, wherever you are, remember to switch off the lights. When you leave the office tonight, switch off your lights too. If you are as green as green, spread the word, tweet, chat, and blog about it. The more lights out, the better for our planet’s future.
Thank you for your support and help in this exciting worldwide event. Thanks,
