Celebrating Earth Hour - Week 12 Weekly Update

Celebrating Earth Hour - Week 12 Weekly Update


As we dust off the long weekend laziness and give our last thoughts to the celebration of Human Rights Day, we welcome the brisk Monday morning with its light batch of rain and mist rolling in over the Bay.

And with Walker Bay shrouded in mist, we take a moment to appreciate the beauty and tranquillity of the area we live. And what better way to show our appreciation than celebrating Earth Hour on Saturday, 29 March 2014. First celebrated on Saturday, March 31st 2007 in Sydney, Australia from 7:30pm local time, Earth Hour has now spread to include hundreds of cities around the world.

Earth Hour this year is scheduled for Saturday, 21 March from 8:30 until 9:30 pm local time and is aimed at turning the awareness into action by asking the question, “How do you honour the Earth?” The organizers of this worldwide movement, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), encourages everyone to spread the word, make your own promise to honour the Earth, talk, tweet and take action. By switching our lights off for one hour already makes a difference, imagine the real difference we can make if we set our minds to it!
