Lights Out for Earth Hour 2015
St Albans Cathedral will be joining landmark buildings around the world by turning off its lights for one hour from 8.30 - 9.30pm on Saturday 28th March to mark the World Wildlife Fund's 'Earth Hour'.
Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement by WWF to unite people to take action for the planet. It was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage hundreds of millions of supporters, individuals and organisations alike, in more than 7000 cities and towns in over 162 countries and territories worldwide.
Canon Kevin Walton at St Albans Cathedral said, “We are always keen to participate in this important global initiative and hope other venues can join in too. As a member of the international Green Pilgrimage network, we continue to take steps towards a more sustainable future and are delighted to be hosting an Environmental Conference here in April for churches throughout the Diocese.”
Everyone in St Albans is urged to join in Earth Hour 2015. You can find out more at http://www.earthhour.org/
