Earth Hour 2016 - Shine a Light on Climate Action

This year marks Earth Hour’s tenth lights out event, and here at WWF-Cambodia we plan to make it an event to remember! In the past nine years, WWF and Earth Hour teams worldwide have harnessed the power of the movement to raise support and funds for access to renewable energy, protection of wildlife and their habitats, building sustainable livelihoods and driving climate-friendly legislation and policy.

The event will take place on Saturday 19 March, from 5pm at the Royal University of Phnom Penh. This year at WWF-Cambodia we are shining a light on renewable energy and the benefits of solar and wind power over the use of polluting greenhouse gases. We are committed to shining a light on climate action and highlighting how our actions can make a difference. Each individual person can play a part in mitigating the effects of climate change and ensuring a brighter, greener future. We have teamed up with several solar powered companies operating in Cambodia to promote their great work and show the benefits of renewable energy use!!

Earth Hour Worldwide

But Earth Hour is not just happening in Cambodia. In 2016, Earth Hour will continue to power grassroots efforts across the globe to change climate change including driving a petition for 100 per cent renewable energy in Spain, protecting forests and biodiversity in Africa and helping devise a comprehensive solution to Southeast Asia’s persistent haze crisis by working with governments, businesses and civil society simultaneously on peatland protection and sustainable palm oil.
Earth Hour 2016 will be celebrated on Saturday, 19 March 2016 between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. in Phnom Penh. Watch this space for all of the exciting events that we have planned for the day, but for now take a look at what happened last year… HERE
