The countdown to secure the future of our home

Millions of buildings around the globe will be dark for an hour on Saturday, March 24th as the 2018 Earth Hour takes place. The event is organized by the World Wildlife Fund.

Switching off lights

It started in 2007 as a way of drawing attention to the dangers of climate change. The Earth Hour website says: “For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Light is traditionally generated by electricity from fossil fuel sources. Switching off lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming.”

Miss Solar Light

Through Miss Solar Light I want to emphasise the transition from energy generated by fossil fuels to energy generated by the eternal source of energy, the Sun. Together with WWF I hope this message will reach a billion people. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Earth Hour promises to be “the largest demonstration of public concern about climate change ever attempted”.
