Come on, play your part this Earth Hour

Here is a call to action worth considering.

Earth Hour is a global call to protect the planet and to stand up against climate change.

Having started in Australia in 2007, the event has since grown in leaps and bounds. South Africans began observing the hour from 2009, ahead of climate change talks in Copenhagen.

Last year, on March 19, Earth Hour South Africa says 178 countries and territories participated in the event and more than 400 landmarks were switched off as well.

Every year, Earth Hour is observed on the last Saturday of March. People around the globe take a collective stand for an hour of the day – it is an hour where people share their concerns, hopes and dreams for the planet.

This year, play your part on Saturday, March 25. Switch off your lights between 8.30 and 9.30pm and talk climate change with your family and friends.

Earth Hour South Africa encourages us to say yes to renewable energy in South Africa. It’s something worth taking seriously – and every voice counts. If you’re serious about saving our planet visit Earth Hour South Africa and sign the petition.
