Every year hundreds of millions of people around the world in more than 7,000 cities in over 180 countries take part in this amazing global conservation movement. People do a wide range of things around the hour to show they care about our planet’s future. Millions choose to mark Earth Hour by going ‘lights out’ for 60 minutes at 8.30pm – a symbolic show of solidarity.
This year, Australians are invited to #Connect2Earth, so that we can all work towards better understanding and appreciating the values of biodiversity and the current critical condition of our home and our planet. Being aware means that we can all take actions to protect our biodiversity and nature, it means we can live more sustainably, and expect the same of businesses and governments.
Stockland is once again participating in Earth Hour, a World Wildlife Fund (WWF) initiative which asks businesses and households to turn all non-essential lighting off for one hour to show support for action against climate change.
On Saturday, March 24, 2017 at 8.30pm, Stockland will join over 7,000 cities and 180 countries in what has become one of the largest global movements for climate change action.
Earth Hour aims to inspire and empower individuals, businesses and governments around the world to push climate change to the top of the agenda. From promoting renewable energy and sustainable agriculture to funding projects to protecting forests and ecosystems and encouraging climate education.
Stockland centres will be participating in Earth Hour by either turning off the pylon signage and any other non-essential lighting from 8.30pm for one hour or holding a bespoke event. Our participation in this iconic annual environmental initiative will be communicated through the Stockland website, in centre signage and a local media release.
