Halton District School Board supports Earth Hour 2021
Students and staff encouraged to turn off lights at school Friday, March 26
The Halton District School Board proudly joins communities around the world in support of Earth Hour on Saturday, March 27 from 8:30 - 9:30 p.m. Millions of people across the globe are expected to turn off lights to recognize the importance of nature and protecting the environment.
The initiative started as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then, the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) Earth Hour has grown to become the world's largest grassroots movement for the environment.
Schools in the Halton District School Board will set an example for their communities and lead into Earth Hour on Friday, March 26 by engaging in a series of learning activities including:
Participation in Earth Hour supports the Board’s continued commitment to environmental leadership and taking action for a sustainable world ⎼ one of the five pillars in the Halton District School Board’s 2020-2024 Multi-Year Plan.
🌍Chris Hadfield has registered for the School Earth Hour Challenge. A challenge with the chance of winning up to 1000 dollars, and of course, helping the environment. On Friday, we will be having all lights off in the school for the whole day. Students will power down, turn off the lights and think about and discuss other ways we can reduce our impact on the planet.
