I love Earth Hour and what it’s about.
It’s a worldwide event organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and held towards the end of March annually, encouraging households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change.
This year for Earth Hour I went down to Cape Town’s Waterfront where the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra played for the full hour, against a backdrop of the city’s beautiful harbour. I really enjoyed the event, held in their open-air ampitheatre, and was super-impressed with the turn out and with the waterfront’s participation in turning off all their non-essential lights (including our no.1 tourist-stop, the Cape Town big wheel, our equivalent to the ‘London Eye’). I wonder how it was in other countries around the world.
What did you do to celebrate Earth Hour?
