Like many others across Aberdeen, I will be backing WWF’s Earth Hour from 8.30pm – 9.30pm on Saturday 17th March.
Hundreds of millions of people around the planet take part in WWF’s Earth Hour every year. Last year around 9 million took part in the UK alone.
People do a wide range of things around the hour to show they care about our planet’s future. Millions choose to mark Earth Hour by going ‘lights out’ for 60 minutes at 8.30pm – a symbolic show of solidarity for the planet. Others pledge to help make a difference for our planet by making small changes in what they do all-year-round.
The world’s biggest landmarks – like Sydney Opera House, the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, and Edinburgh Castle – switch off lights as a visual display of their commitment too.
