Steve McCabe MP is raising awareness for Earth Hour, the world’s largest annual event to protect the planet.
Steve McCabe made a pledge for the environment ahead of the global lights out event on Saturday 30th March at 8:30pm.
WWF are raising awareness to send the message that it is unacceptable to sit back and watch the destruction of nature, and to help inspire everyone to make their voice heard this Earth Hour, by choosing to change something in everyday life that will help protect our planet.
In the UK, every year millions of people take part in Earth Hour, joining hundreds of millions more around the globe. Earth Hour has helped us find solutions for the environmental challenges we face globally. This includes influencing national climate policies, planting new forests in Uganda, and banning plastic in the Galapagos. The world’s biggest landmarks – such as the Sydney Opera House, Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, and Edinburgh Castle – switch off lights as a visual display of their commitment to our planet.
“I’m proud to be supporting Earth Hour to protect our planet and our environment. I’m supporting a New Deal for Nature and People to restore nature and fight the signs of climate change. I hope my constituents will join me in raising awareness of the environmental challenges we are currently facing”
