EARTH HOUR 19th March 2016 8.30 – 9.30pm
Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wild Fund for Nature [WWF]. This event has been held annually since 2007 and last year more than 10 million people took some part. The Hour begins in Samoa and ends in Tahiti and has grown to include 162 countries and territories. The Earth Hour encourages individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential electricity for ONE hour. The idea is to raise awareness of climate change and to demonstrate that we care about the planet. The Dean and Chapter have agreed that the Cathedral will participate and our floodlighting and other non-essential lighting will be switched off for one hour. Inside the Cathedral there will be a candlelit meditation and prayer for the planet.
Please join us for ONE Hour to show you care for the Earth!
