Earth Hour is a global initiative to raise awareness about the actions that anybody can take to reduce climate change and greenhouse gas emissions.
On Saturday March 23, citizens worldwide are asked to turn off their lights and electronics at 8:30 p.m. for one hour.
The City is pleased to participate by turning off non-essential lighting in various buildings including: the Langevin Bridge, 4th Street Underpass, Riverwalk, the Public Art LED Box near the 5th Ave Flyover, Manchester Building E, and Calgary Fire Department facilities. Earth Hour is about more than just switching off lights for an hour, it is a simple and visual way to show our understanding of the increasing impact of our lifestyles on the environment.
Join The City this Saturday and everyday to reduce energy use. Click here for more information on Earth Hour Canada.
