Here are all of the posts tagged ‘climate change’.
Earth Hour is taking place this Saturday, 26th March, at 8:30pm local time. It’s a global event that sees communities, businesses and iconic buildings switch off all of their lights for an hour, making a statement to the world’s governments for more urgent and effective action on climate change.
We’re working with WWF again this year to get online communities talking about Earth Hour, encouraging others to sign-up or ‘Like’ the Facebook Page to show their support and send a clear message that climate change needs to be addressed.
Last year, hundreds of millions of people across a record 128 different countries and territories took part, and this year the WWF have set their sights even higher. Topping last year’s awesome results will be no mean feat; but with enough support, we’re confident it’s one we can achieve.
So, if you have a blog, a Twitter account or are on Facebook it would be fantastic if you could write a post, share a tweet or donate a status update about Earth Hour. Even better, ask your readers, friends, families and colleagues to get involved as well.
If you’re keen to do more, then WWF have come up with a number of online resources to help you spread the word, including:
- An embeddable YouTube video for your blog
- A new and improved Earth Hour UK & Ireland county signup challenge which pits county against county to see which part of the British Isles has the most people signed up to Earth Hour 2011
- The now famous Earth Hour light switch widget to embed on your blog:
As if that lot wasn’t enough there are a load more ways to share content and help show your support.
Earth Hour is, at heart, a collective effort and every contribution really is vital (even re-tweeting this post), so please join in and show your support.
The more signups and ‘Likes’ we get, the more we can demonstrate to governments around the world the strength of our shared voice on this urgent matter.
Earth Hour 2010, the global event when people, businesses and iconic buildings around the world will switch off their lights for an hour at 8.30pm local time is coming up again this Saturday, 27th March.
We’re working with the WWF to get the word out to bloggers to start conversations about Earth Hour, encourage people to sign-up to show their support and send a clear message to the world’s governments that climate change needs to be addressed urgently.
Hopefully, by working together we can top last year’s awesome achievements which saw hundreds of millions of people across 3,000 cities and towns in 83 countries participate.
If you have a blog, or a Twitter account or are on Facebook it would be fantastic if you could blog about Earth Hour and even better if you could ask your readers, friends, families, colleagues to get involved too.
If you’re keen to do more, WWF have come up with a number of online resources for you to use, including:
- The all new Earth Hour UK & Ireland county signup challenge which pits county against county to see which part of the British Isles has the most people signed up
- A nifty light-switch widget for your blog (see this in action at the top-right hand-side of our blog)
- Embeddable YouTube videos
And if none of those takes your fancy then there are loads of other ways to show your support and take part.
Every contribution, no matter how small you think it might be (even re-tweeting this post would help!), is important, so please help us and show your support. Essentially, the more signups we get, the more we can show governments around the world how seriously their people now consider global warming to be, and how loud their voice is on this urgent issue.
