Earth Hour 2013

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.

Earth Hour

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?

  1. wow, that’s a nice thing to celebrate the earth hour with others. I didn’t do anything special this year but will definitely do something the next.

  2. Yes it was special! Aw that’s a pity… but hey, every hour should be ‘earth hour’ 😉

    Nicely put, every day should be an earth hour, a holiday, or whatever special days you choose to celebrate once a year. Guess what, what you choose it to be, it will be.. 🙂 I love your posts, and you put some much detail with apparent ease and vivacious attitude that is hard not to follow.
