Our actions today, as individuals and the global community, have the power to transform what the world will look like for generations to come – the time to act against climate change is now.
BSP in Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Cook Islands, Samoa and Tonga will join 178 countries and territories around the world to observe Earth Hour this Saturday, 19th March.
This is done as part of BSP’s Go Green initiative to raise awareness on environmental issues and to stand with millions of people worldwide to Shine a Light on Climate Change – #Changeclimatechange.
The 2016 Earth Hour Theme reflects that, “Our actions today, as individuals and the global community, have the power to transform what the world will look like for generations to come – the time to act against climate change is now.”
BSP will be switching non – essential lights off from 8:30pm to 9.30pm (local time) to mark Earth Hour. This effort is in line with our ongoing Go Green campaign.
Earth Hour is a global event created, established in 2007, by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in Sydney. Since than participation has grown significantly.
This year, 350 of the world’s most iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, Taipei 101 and the Sydney Opera House prepare to switch off their lights.
This initiative is open to all individuals and organisations. Participate and show your commitment. For more information on Earth Hour: https://www.earthhour.org.
