Earth Hour 2016

With 2015 being the hottest year on record (by a large margin) and too little being done to address climate change, activities like Earth Hour continue to be very important.

Clearly Earth Hour isn’t going to solve climate change – it doesn’t claim too – but Earth Hour does make a difference.  The paradox of inconsequence suggests that although any single action we do to combat climate change can feel like we are making no real difference; it will only be through millions of smaller decisions and actions that we will be able to successfully combat climate change and create more sustainable communities.

Earth Hour, 19 March 2016, is one strategy that can help raise awareness and encourage action. Please help spread the word.
