Earth Hour

Earth Hour is the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment and involves everybody switching off non-essential lights to show their commitment to the planet.

The world’s biggest landmarks – such as the Sydney Opera House, Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, and Edinburgh Castle – have previously switch off their lights and you can switch off too! This Saturday (30th March) at 8.30pm remember to switch off to show your commitment and #Connect2Earth. You can also make pledge for Earth Hour by following https://www.wwf.org.uk/earthhour.

Here at the University, we are asking all staff and students on Monday 1st April, to switch off monitors, lights and PCs for an hour and come for a walk around Peel Park and The Meadows. Check out the short video on our twitter page @UoS_Sustain, which has been created by third year student, James Kuwamura, to find out more about the campaign.

When: Monday 1st April

Where: Meet outside Maxwell building

Time: 12pm
