|Email item||Print item||
The island of Gozo will join the rest of the world for the Earth hour initiative, which takes place this coming Saturday, the 23rd of March, between 8.30 and 9.30pm.
The aim of this event is to encourage households, businesses, private and public establishments to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change.
The first Earth hour took place in 2007 in Sydney, with other cities joining and participating as from the following year.
Everyone is now encouraged to switch off the lights/or else practice any other environmentally-friendly measure as a sign of commitment to protect our planet.
Across the globe, Earth Hour’s IWIYW campaign on YouTube has attracted four million participants and received more than 200,000 commitments from individuals, businesses, organisations and governments, all taking their action for the action for the planet far beyond the hour.
