Lights to go out across Surrey and Hampshire for Earth Hour

Lights to go out across Surrey and Hampshire for Earth Hour

The next Earth Hour starts tonight (Saturday 24 March) at 8.30pm and finishes at 9.30pm, local time.

Earth Hour events have been postponed due to the threat of bad weather.

A performance by acappella group Just Vocal Band will be held in the main lobby of The Westin Taipei to attract guests to congregate in the area, ensuring the lights are off in their rooms.

Earth Hour is now in its eleventh year and last year nine million people took part in all corners of the globe. Riding on the momentum of the Paris Agreement for COP21, Earth Hour 2017 was the biggest one yet with more than 180 countries and territories participating in #ChangeClimateChange.

Tomorrow's highlight will be the Earth Hour countdown at 8.30pm when the complex will connect with Earth Hour Brunei via live feed at Bandar Seri Begawan. Connect2Earth is a call for people worldwide to connect with the environmental issues and causes that they personally care about.

"We likewise encourage the private sector to turn off their lights and other signages in their facilities during Earth Hour as their operations and businesses will allow", he added.

In a message posted to Twitter on Saturday morning, Mayor John Tory said that he is encouraging everyone to partake in Earth Hour by limiting their electricity use and "celebrating how we are all connected to the Earth".

The predictions for rising plastic use in the United Kingdom are based on modelling existing available data and take into account factors such as rising economic output and the impact of new European legislation.

Many participants like to use candles as a light source (where it's safe to do so) during Earth Hour, and do something that doesn't involve using electricity, such as reading a book or playing a board game.

Now, the Philippines has been heralded as the "Earth Hour Hero Country" for topping Earth Hour participation levels from 2009-2013, contributing over 1,600 of the world's 7,000 Earth Hour hubs.

Through Executive Order 356-2018, this city joins in the global movement as an act of support and commitment to the environment.
