What will you do for Earth Hour Day? Our planet needs us now more than ever…
Every year, at 8:30pm on the last Saturday of March, millions across the globe turn off their lights as a stand against over-consumption. Designed to be a catalyst for urgent change, not just a symbolic show of support, this event calls on people from every walk of life to help.
If you’re a Postgraduate environmental science student or engineering student at the University of Bolton, this subject is already close to your heart. But anyone who takes an interest in sustainable practices is also encouraged to take part.
Our MRes Environmental Management programme supports a number of professional pathways, including risk assessment, hazardous substances, environmental media, project management and meteorology. All of which contribute to a safer, more sustainable planet for all.
If you’re working or studying in this field, or you simply care about preserving the planet for future generations, Earth Hour 2021 is your time to switch off and speak up.
“Ah hour can change decades”
Over the years, homes and businesses across the world have turned off their lights, launching entire streets, towns and cities into darkness. Not only is this an unmissable sight, but it sends a very important message about the use of fossil fuels.
The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Earth Hour event is about more than just hitting those switches though. Its main goal is to spread the word about greener, more responsible living.
Here’s how you can get involved:
Step 1) Follow Earth Hour on social
• Instagram - @EarthHourOfficial
• Facebook - @EarthHour
• Twitter - @EarthHour
• YouTube - Earth Hour
Step 2) Look out for the Earth Hour video, due to be posted on the night of Earth Hour on March 27th (available across all of their social pages)
Step 3) Share the video and use the hashtag #EarthHour
