Earth Hour 2015 is coming up! Earth Hour is a worldwide lights-off event to raise awareness about climate change. This year Earth Hour will be held on Saturday, 28 March 2015 at 20:30h.
What can you do?
The Green Office will also join the VU in Earth Hour and so can you! Whether you are at school, home, work or somewhere else, make sure you turn your lights off at 20:30h for at least an hour. Afraid of the dark? Don’t worry! From the 26th until the 27th of March our team will be handing out tea lights in the hall of the main building of the VU. Be sure to walk by to pick up yours.
Win a Waka Waka!
There is also a sustainable way to keep your lights on. With a Waka Waka you can solar charge your mobile device anywhere and anytime, but it can also be used as a flashlight. Want to win a Waka Waka (at the value of €70,-)? This is how you can win:
1. Take a picture in the dark with candle light
2. Share the picture on Twitter or Facebook:
3. We will select a picture and announce the winner.
So on the 28th: lights off, candles on!
