8:30 PM on Saturday 29th March 2014 is the start of this year’s Earth Hour – Earth Hour Blue. Many pupils may be interested in being a part of this global event. There is lots of information at the Earth Hour official website and even very young children can “Join millions of people across the world who switch lights off for an hour – to raise awareness for the planet.”(Earth Hour Website)
There is a list of previous events and videos available from this website which may give children a better understanding of what the event is all about. In addition, Earth Hour UK has a Facebook page which teachers may enjoy watching and sharing a few bits of news with pupils.
