Earth Hour

Earth Hour is on Saturday March 23rd 2013

Earth Hour is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world. Born out of a hope that we could mobilize people to take action on climate change, Earth Hour now inspires a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.

Everyone has power to inspire people, make real change and impact in the world. Every year, hundreds of thousands of schools, students, businesses, governments and organizations have stepped forward to lead and commit to Earth Hour, so we are inviting you to join us too in our global movement.

Teachers, students and the wider John Xxiii College community are taking part in Earth Hour please join us on Saturday 23rd at 8.30.

Please join in and celebrate World Water Day and World Earth Day with us!

If can contribute some sustainable ideas or suggestions for the College please feel free to email me

Let's work together to make a noticeable improvement in the area of sustainability at John XXIII College.
