Earth Hour In Nanaimo Mar. 19 - 8:30 pm

On Saturday, March 19 at 8:30 pm, the world will turn off its lights for one hour to show it’s possible to take action on climate change. This worldwide event is called Earth Hour.

This year, the City of Nanaimo will continue to support this event and raise awareness about what all of us can do, no matter how small, in saving energy and lowering greenhouse gas emissions in our community.

Earth Hour will take place on Saturday, March 19 from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

An Earth Hour themed Glow in the Dark skate will take place at Nanaimo Ice Centre on Saturday, March 19 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Last year BC Hydro reported a reduction of 0.2 per cent of the provincial electricity load which is the equivalent of turning off about 680,000 LED light bulbs.
