Earth Hour to take place on March 26
The island will mark Earth Hour on the final Saturday of this month with a two-hour live online broadcast dedicated to environmental awareness.
The charity Greenrock said the airing from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on March 26 would follow on the success of last year’s broadcasting.
Eugene Dean, the chairman of Greenrock, called on the community to switch of unnecessary lights for the two hours of programming.
He added: “Let’s reflect on our contribution to Bermuda’s carbon footprint, consider the impact of zero-emission transportation, imagine meeting the needs of our country with clean, renewable energy, and envision what our lives could look like living in harmony with the natural world.”
Throughout March, Greenrock will host “a few Earth-Hour-themed initiatives, including a community cleanup, a gardening project, and an educational nature walk to raise awareness about our local environment”.
The broadcast will highlight ways of building a sustainable future for Bermuda – and raise funds through pledges and donations.
The public are encouraged to sign up as members or corporate supporters.
The event marks the 15th year for Earth Hour in Bermuda.
Viewers can tune in through the Greenrock YouTube channel, the Greenrock Facebook page, the Greenrock website, and live broadcast partners Bermuda Broadcasting Company and Channel 82.
