Is anyone in Palmetto Bay participating in Earth Hour tonight? Is participating in conservation activities still a thing? There are no Earth Hour events listed on the Village website or social media.
Earth Hour takes place at 8:30 pm -- wherever you are!
The theme of this year's Earth Hour is 'Shape Our Future'. It is a pivotal year for everyone to shape the world for the future generations by raising awareness about the damages to climate that are impacting our world today.
What happens during Earth Hour?: The event is held annually, encouraging individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights, for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on a specific day towards the end of March, as a symbol of commitment to the planet.I have always enjoyed promoting this very simple event. It only takes dimming your lights for a single hour to make a statement (but promotes activities and conservation that should be practiced throughout the year). When I served as Mayor, I enjoyed invitations to enjoy some great candlelit outdoor parties to jointly mark the event. Fun times for a great purpose. I expect great weather for our small personal event.
