Eco-Eye presenter and environmentalist Duncan Stewart says that ‘Earth Hour for me means that once a year for one hour we celebrate our environment - and the need to protect our environment. We should just switch off our lights, walk out of house - even for one minute - and communicate with everyone else on our streets - even in country areas - to show that we care about our environment.'
Earth Hour 2011 is on Saturday 26 March from 8.30 - 9.30 PM.
During this hour individuals as well as businesses and Government buildings all over the world will turn off their lights for one hour to demonstrate a global concern for the environment and global warming. 125 countries joined Earth Hour last year. 4000 cities took part. Paris, Moscow, Berlin, Bern, Amsterdam, Madrid, Vaduz, and Dublin joined cities as far afield as Capetown and Rio Janerio.
