This year WWF Earth Hour falls on 24th March at 8:30pm. Neil Findlay MSP met with campaigners in the Scottish Parliament to discuss the impact of climate change on our natural habitat.
Earth Hour is a global movement, which brings millions together across the world to call for greater action on climate change.
Each year, hundreds of millions of people around the world switch off their lights and organise events – at home, in their community or in their towns or cities – to show they care about the future of our planet.
Last year nearly 9 million people across the UK took part to send a clear message of support for climate action.
From the Sydney Opera House and the Eiffel Tower to Buckingham Palace and Edinburgh Castle, cities, towns and communities like West Lothian across the world switched out their lights and came together for an hour, to join a global show of support for action on climate.
Join together at 8.30pm on Saturday 24 March 2018. Switch off your lights and show you want action.
Neil Findlay MSP said:
“In the last year Scottish Labour have led on the effective end of fracking in Scotland whilst committing to an industrial strategy that puts green jobs and infrastructure at its core.
“Showing the world we take climate change very seriously is one small step we can all take in order to make a more sustainable future a reality. I’ll be taking part in Earth Hour and I hope many local people will be too.”
