WWF (World Wildlife Fund), where you can help take
a stand against Climate Change. To take part in Earth
Hour you commit to switching off your lights for one
hour – simple huh? In South Africa Earth Hour will take
place this Saturday, 28 March at 20:30.
Earth Hour’s ambition is to unite the world with a common goal; to save our
precious planet against climate change. By adding your name to the cause
you will help in pushing a Climate Control legislation passed at the Climate
Change Conference in Copenhagen at the end of 2009.
This year 37 national capitals will take part in this global drive against climate
change, including London, Sydney & Hong Kong with South Africa being
represented by Johannesburg, Cape Town & Durban.
Our local celebrities are also involved. Big names such as; March Lottering,
The Parlotones, Leon Schuster, Freshly Ground & Ryk Neetling, to name
but a few. Even our president, Kgalema Motlanthe along with Archbishop
Desmond Tutu have joined up in support. To check out other participants

The world’s most famous landmarks will be dropped into darkness as a
show of support for Earth Hour: Table Mountain, Christ the Redeemer (in
