Earth Hour Saudi Arabia 2010

Filed under: Events — Tags: , — Khaled A. @ 8:00 am

Earth Hour is “a global event organized by WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature, also known as World Wildlife Fund) and is held on the last Saturday of March annually, asking households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change.”

Saudi Arabia is participating in this year’s Earth Hour officially for the first year! From Arab News: “Lights are expected to be switched off in major cities including Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam from 8.30 to 9.30 in the evening. A number of government departments and private sector companies are also taking part.”

Make sure to join the Facebook event! Residents of Jeddah should also check this event by What’s Up Jeddah. Finally I just discovered this Earth Hour Saudi Arabia Facebook Group.
