Earth Hour 2010: help spread the word
Earth Hour 2010, the global event when people, businesses and iconic buildings around the world will switch off their lights for an hour at 8.30pm local time is coming up again this Saturday, 27th March.
We’re working with the WWF to get the word out to bloggers to start conversations about Earth Hour, encourage people to sign-up to show their support and send a clear message to the world’s governments that climate change needs to be addressed urgently.
Hopefully, by working together we can top last year’s awesome achievements which saw hundreds of millions of people across 3,000 cities and towns in 83 countries participate.
If you have a blog, or a Twitter account or are on Facebook it would be fantastic if you could blog about Earth Hour and even better if you could ask your readers, friends, families, colleagues to get involved too.
If you’re keen to do more, WWF have come up with a number of online resources for you to use, including:
- The all new Earth Hour UK & Ireland county signup challenge which pits county against county to see which part of the British Isles has the most people signed up
- A nifty light-switch widget for your blog (see this in action at the top-right hand-side of our blog)
- Embeddable YouTube videos
And if none of those takes your fancy then there are loads of other ways to show your support and take part.
Every contribution, no matter how small you think it might be (even re-tweeting this post would help!), is important, so please help us and show your support. Essentially, the more signups we get, the more we can show governments around the world how seriously their people now consider global warming to be, and how loud their voice is on this urgent issue.
