Earlier this month in parliament I visited WWF to see what projects they have planned for 2016. I got my picture taken with Tom Tugendhat MP who sits on the PACAC Committee with me. The event was worthwhile just for getting a picture with Tom and the two pandas, we all know the joke – there are more pandas in Scotland than Tory MPs, however there was a more serious side to the event as it was to raise awareness of this year’s Earth Hour.
This year’s Earth Hour will be taking place tomorrow, I will be joining millions of people form cross the world who will come together in a symbolic and spectacular ‘lights out’ display. Earth Hour 2016 will be held tomorrow, Saturday the 19th of March from 8:30pm.
Join people in more than 7,000 cities and towns across almost every country in the world. Iconic buildings will plunge into darkness along with schools, businesses and communities. You can both get involved during the hour but also by pledging to take greener steps throughout the year.
Earth Hour is a brilliant reminder that together we can make change happen and sends a powerful message to world leaders that we must protect our planet.
