Earth Hour 2014
March 29, 2014 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Join the Ecology Action Center in participating in Earth Hour 2014!
On Saturday, March 29th from 8:30-9:30pm cities around the world will participate in Earth Hour 2014. Participants will join together to turn off their nonessential lights and equipment for one hour. This symbolic effort will raise awareness about how energy efficiency and conservation can help reduce the negative impacts of global climate change. The Ecology Action Center encourages families, businesses, and other community groups of Bloomington-Normal to participate in this year’s Earth Hour by making an effort to reduce their ecological footprint and respond to the issue of climate change.
Earth Hour began in Sydney, Australia in 2007 with 2.2 million people and 2,100 businesses. It has now grown to more than 6,950 cities across 152 countries. Through this effort many individuals and participants have been encouraged to go beyond the hour and pledge to make a difference in their community. Earth Hour 2014 in McLean County will involve cooperative action in order to the make the community more green and sustainable.
For more information about Earth Hour you can visit www.earthhour.org and find creative ways to increase participation throughout the community. We can all work together to spread the word and help raise awareness about climate change.
