Gwynedd Council will support Earth Hour campaign

"Lots of people try to reduce their consumption of power and a lot of people in Prince George do turn off their lights for that one hour", explains REAPS Spokesperson Terri McClymont.

He cited how Earth Hour aims to raise awareness on the need for climate action and the promotion of sustainable energy sources.

Taking place on Saturday, March 24between 8:30 and 9:30 pm, Earth Hour is now the world's largest grassroots movement for the environment.

Cllr Dafydd Meurig, Gwynedd Council cabinet member for environment, said: "As a council, we are very proud to support WWF's Earth Hour again this year. And this Earth Hour, these leaders are uniting with Americans from all walks of life to build a more renewable, prosperous future". Considered to be the most significant environmental, Earth Hour started in 2007 when first Earth Hour was held on March 31 in Sydney, Australia at 7:30 pm, local time.

Apart from that, streetlights in the Segama, Segama Waterfront and Sinsuran area will also be switched off, as well as lights of all buildings owned by City Hall.

Devos said while reliance on harmful energy is an important cause, the people behind Earth Hour are more focused on using the event to instead draw attention to the world's depleting wildlife population.

"We feel every individual should observe the Earth Hour to remind ourselves the importance of preserving mother Earth", Dhananjay Kumar, General Manager of The Suryaa, said in a statement.

Manchester Cathedral will be turning off non-essential lights for one hour to support WWF's Earth Hour this Saturday.
