Earth Hour Initiative

It is easy to forget how much we depend on the planet for so many things like food, fuel, water and fresh air and that the actions we take—from the energy we use to the food we buy—have an effect on the world. Earth Hour is our chance to make and show our commitment to protect our planet not just for one hour a year, but every day.

If you want to help our planet be protected, join the Earth Hour Initiative promoted by WWF. Earth Hour is a simple idea that quickly turned into a global phenomenon. Hundreds of millions of people around the world turn off their lights for one hour on the same night, to focus on the one thing that unites us all—our planet.

Every year, some of the most well-known monuments from all over the world, such as the Egyptian pyramids, Eiffel Tower in Paris, Acropolis in Athens, Christ Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, etc, get their lights off during 60 minutes. More than 1 billion people across the planet turned their lights off during the Earth hour in 2012.

It will be happening on March, 23rd(Saturday) from 8:30 to 9:30pm in our local time. If you would like to join this initiative, turn off your lights during this time. Also, dare your family, your friends and your church to save the planet!

You can sign the Earth hour pledge at http://wwf.worldwildlife.org/site/PageServer?pagename=EarthHourPledge_2013_Individual

Other ways to contribute to the initiative:

1. Spread the word;

2. Participating in the challenge called “I will if you will”. The main idea of this challenge is to ask your circle of friends and organizations to act more specifically. The main question is: what are you willing to do to save our planet? There are a lot of simple ideas at http://www.youtube.com/EarthHour

  1. Thanks for this great info, of which we had unfortunately never heard. (Italy seems to be a fair bit out of the loop on many topics!) We have taken the pledge for lights out and will enjoy a peaceful evening with some candlelight. And we’ve re-blogged this post to http:knacksackspirit.wordpress.com in the hopes of getting the word out to at least a few more people! By the way, thanks for your visit and participation in our blog. May God richly bless you in all that you do for him, but especially in helping you to grow ever closer to him!
