Flip the Switch on Energy Conservation: Power Down on March 27th from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Started in 2007 by the World Wildlife Fund, EARTH HOUR is an annual one-hour "lights out" event which has become an annual international recognition of climate change and the importance of energy conservation.
Held annually on the last Saturday of March, more than 180 countries and territories will flip the switch bringing light to planet conservation.
At Penn State's University Park campus, student representatives of EcoReps are hosting the commemoration of Earth Hour on March, 27 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m with a lantern display to shine on Old Main as students, faculty, staff, and members of the Center County community are asked to not use electricity during this hour-long 'lights out event. Please join us in celebrating Earth hour in your home, neighborhood, or community while maintaining proper social distancing.
Your business, organization, school, apartment, house or place of worship can participate. Learn more about Earth Hour.
Support EcoRep's mission on campus by signing their pledge. Each pledge will be honored with one lantern on the Old Main lawn.
From all of us at the Center for the Business of Sustainability, we hope to take in the night sky or afternoon sunshine with our fellow Penn State Family as we reduce our carbon emissions and support the preservation of our planet.
