Earth Hour is the largest movement for the planet in human history, spanning 7,000 cities, 152 countries with a digital reach of 200 million. Earth Hour is much, much more than a symbolic action of switching off lights for an hour; it’s a continuous movement driving actions, big and small, that are changing the world we live in.

Oshawa Celebrates Earth Hour

Earth Hour 2012 starts at 8:30 Saturday: What will you be doing?

The 2011 Oshawa Earth Hour community event was such an enjoyable event, and the support for doing it again is tremendous. Therefore we are going to drum once again.

The drums are scheduled to be delivered, the Facilitators are ready and the people are registering. You can play, or you can clap, or just listen.

Earth Hour is a global event that is bring attention to the issue of climate change and encouraging everyone to act by conserving and make responsible choices that are sustainable.

Small acts:

– Turn off lights when you leave a room

– Install energy saving light bulbs

– When using an oven, try to cook more than one thing

Earth Hour is a perfect example of community engagement, where citizens influence decisions.

March 2011

The Foundation for Building Sustainable Communities in partnership with the City of Oshawa, Oshawa Public Utilities Commission hosts the Annual Earth Hour Community Event.

Earth Hour is a global event that started in one city to promote climate change and encourage small actions, such as turning off the lights for one hour.

For the Oshawa Earth Hour event, over 140 people come to a drumming circle lead by Mary Brennan, who, helped us feel the music while the lights were turned off.   Everyone agreed that is was a fun time and look forward to doing it again in 2012.

Go beyond one hour and turn your lights off when you are not using them.  It saves money and the environment too
