During this hour, people around the world turn off their lights in support of addressing climate change. At Chris Hadfield, we will be participating in Earth Hour on Friday March 23rd by powering down and turning off or unplugging all non-essential lights, computers, and other electrical devices. During this hour, students will have the opportunity to participate in various activities to learn about the importance of reducing our use of electricity. Through learning and action, we can make a difference for our planet. In addition to our school Earth Hour event, we encourage students to take this message home and as a family, participate in Earth Hour on Saturday March 24th from 8:30-9:30 pm. Some activities you could do include: stargazing, board games by candlelight, watching an eco-themed film, or make a family pledge to commit to protecting the environment. By reducing and conserving our energy use we are helping to reduce the amount of air pollution in Ontario caused by the burning of fossil fuels to generate electricity. In fact, the air quality in Ontario has improved in recent years because of these types of actions. We look forward to hearing about all the creative ways your family participates in Earth Hour!
