Vote Earth – Your Light Switch Is Your Vote foto
Più informazioni su
Earth Hour takes place on 28 March 2009 and asks you to vote for the planet you live on the Earth by switching the light off for one hour starting from 20:30 hrs local time.
By switching your light off for one hour you take part into the world’s first global election between Earth and global warming. Indeed it is the first time in history that people anywhere in the world have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote in favour of Mother Earth. The target is to reach 1 billion votes which will be presented to the world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009 where official government policies to take action against global warming will be determined. It is your chance to make your voice count.
Some history quoting from the website:
“Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.”
So remember: it is not relevant which country you are from, but which planet you are from. Help to vote Earth and to reach the 1 billion votes that can help to create a change. Each single vote counts. By voting together people, and that means also you, can take control of the future of our planet and for future generations.
You just need to switch off your lights for one hour on Saturday 28 March 2008 from 20:30 hrs on for 60 minutes.
