Last year more than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries switched off their lights for Earth Hour, sending a powerful message for action on climate change. This month Earth Hour calls on individuals, businesses, communities and governments to go Beyond the Hour and take positive action for the planet and celebrate with the people of the world by switching off their lights for one designated hour.
Here in Norwich we support this global action by creating an event outside the Forum, with fire jugglers and musicians, stalls and lively debate about environmental issues, highlighting the amount of energy that can be saved by switching the lights out.
This will be Norwich Earth Hour's 5th year and we would love to make it bigger and better than ever.
All and any help would be most appreciated and we openly invite musicians, drummers, fire performers, community groups and anyone else willing to come lend a hand. Our only rule is no use of electricity please! Jenny Bryan
Earth Hour will take place outside the Forum on 31 March between 8.30-9.30pm.
