[:en]Cynnal Cymru will be once again supporting Earth Hour—the annual, global celebration of the planet.
At 8.30pm on Saturday 25 March 2017, we’ll be joining forces with landmarks across the globe like the Senedd in Cardiff Bay, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and New York’s Times Square by switching off the lights at our offices.
In 2017, Earth Hour marks its 10th year, and by taking part, we’re showing our commitment to taking action to tackle climate change.
Around half a million people in Wales participate in Earth Hour every year, and by taking part, they’re showing that they want to see action being taken to tackle climate change now.
Mari Arthur, Director of Cynnal Cymru, said:
“Cynnal Cymru is very proud to support WWF’s Earth Hour once again this year. Our organisation hase a big role to play in tackling climate change, so we’re looking forward to turning off the lights at Cambrian Buildings at 8.30pm on Saturday 25 March to show our support.”
Anne Meikle, Head of WWF Cymru, added:
“We’re delighted that Cynnal Cymru is supporting WWF’s Earth Hour again this year. Climate change will have a massive effect on people’s lives here in Wales and around the world. So it’s great that Welsh organisations are throwing their weight behind the call for action to tackle it.
“Everyone—from individuals and community groups, to schools and businesses—can sign up to Earth Hour by visiting www.wwf.org.uk/earthhourwales and then switching off their lights at 8.30pm on Saturday 25 March 2017.”[:cy]
