ENVIRONMENTALISTS are needed to help turn this year’s Earth Hour into the “biggest and best” ever.
Organisers at the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) are looking for Buddies to support the annual event which attracted support from people across the globe in 128 countries and territories.
For the past four years Earth Hour – being held on Saturday, March 26 – has grown into the world’s largest event in support of people and wildlife threatened by climate change.
And Paisley Daily Express readers may even remember seeing pictures of the lights being switched off at iconic landmarks in Scotland and around the world in support of the campaign.
Dr Richard Dixon, Director of WWF Scotland, said: “I’d like to ask Express readers if they will help us to make WWF’s annual Earth Hour event the biggest and best ever.
“With your help I know we can ensure that action to tackle climate change continues long after the Hour is over.”
Last year people across the world, from all walks of life, turned off their lights and came together in celebration of the planet.
In Scotland, 300 schools and over two hundred other businesses, organisations and community groups supported the big switch off.
On the night people celebrated Earth Hour with candle-lit meals, topical film screenings, torch-lit walks, pub quizzes and even a round of night golf. WWF is hoping to see even more fun and innovative ideas later this month. Participation is free.
