Earth Hour is a global initiative to raise awareness of energy use and unite people to protect the planet. It was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then, it has grown to engage people in more than 172 countries and territories worldwide.
Since 2010, YVSC has led our community’s observance of Earth Hour and encouraged people to go “beyond the hour” to make changes in their daily lives to conserve energy. Students in Steamboat schools will once again participate in the annual school Earth Hour observation by turning off classroom or hallway lights, going outside or engaging in learning activities that don’t require electronic devices or electricity.
You can join people around the globe in this inspiring event by turning off your lights and powering down your devices from 8:30-9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 25. Come on, when was the last time you ate dinner by candlelight?
Climate action doesn’t stop after March 25. Here are the top 10 things you can do to conserve energy and protect the climate.
