Jo encourages local residents to switch off the lights


Local MP Jo Swinson is encouraging local residents to take in part in World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour 2014. 

On Saturday 29th March, from 8:30-9:30pm individuals in East Dunbartonshire and around the world will celebrate Earth Hour by switching off their lights for one hour to show their support for energy that works with the power of nature, not against it.

Last year over 7 million people in the UK took part in WWF’s Earth Hour. This unique global phenomenon encourages every corner of the globe to switch off for one hour and includes iconic landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, the Sydney Opera House and the Taj Mahal.

Commenting, Jo said:

“I’ll join many East Dunbartonshire residents in switching my lights off for Earth Hour. Millions of people in more than 150 countries across the globe will take part in this annual event, a powerful reminder that as countries and individuals we must join together to tackle climate change.

“We’ve only got one planet, so it’s vital we do everything we can to protect it.  Earth Hour is about the collective impact we can all make, beyond just this one hour. To find out more about WWF’s Earth Hour and register to take part go to: wwf.org.uk/earthhour .”
