At 8:30 PM, Saturday 29 March 2014, hundreds of millions of people around the world will turn off their lights for one hour, Earth Hour.
In previous years, the City of Charles Sturt has participated in Earth Hour by ensuring that non-essential lighting and electrical appliances controlled by Council at Council’s Civic Centre are switched off between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, a community function is to be held on Saturday 29 March 2014 at Council’s Civic Centre, and will limit Council’s ability to participate in Earth Hour this year in this location.
Council is proud to support a community Earth Hour event at Kirkcaldy Reserve – for more details see here.
To find out how we as a Council 'go beyond the hour' go to 'Towards One Planet Living: Greening the Western Suburbs' at http://www.charlessturt.sa.gov.au/site/page.aspx?u=234
More information on Earth Hour 2014 can be found here.
Participating in Earth Hour is a great first step; but go ‘beyond the hour’ and ‘switch off for good’ by pledging to make your energy use more Earth friendly by selecting renewable energy sources.
SIGN UP NOW! Encourage your friends, family and workmates to sign up as well! http://www.wwf.org.au/earthhour/ and log on to facebook and twitter and help spread the word!
