On Saturday March 31 at 8:30pm, hundreds of landmark buildings from around the world will be switching their lights off in the name of Earth Hour.
In Everton Park there is likely to be quite a few households and businesses going dark for the hour and if anybody was in town last year then they might remember how amazing it was to wonder around at night to see just how many people had turned their lights off for the event.
Some people may wonder what the point of Earth Hour is though – why do people all around the world switch there lights off for just one hour and not more often? Ideally people should be trying to switch off their lights more often, but Earth Hour isn’t about just saving energy in that one hour, it’s about raising awareness for energy conservation that will hopefully inspire people to think more about their energy habits.
Earth Hour started as a simple idea in Sydney in 2007 and it has now grown exponentially to the point where the goal for Earth Hour is to get 1 billion of the world’s population to turn off their lights, and they might even get there if we all join in.
It’s a bit of fun too, how often do we all just sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet of candlelight or go outside at night to look at the stars?
So are you going to switch off your lights for Earth Hour this year?
