Council joins WWF’s Earth Hour 2017

Published: 16/03/2017

Flintshire County Council will, once again, be supporting Earth Hour—the annual, global celebration of the planet. In 2017, Earth Hour marks its 10th year and the Council is showing its commitment to taking action to tackle climate change by joining forces with landmarks across the globe like the Senedd in Cardiff Bay, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and New York’s Times Square. At 8.30pm on Saturday 25 March 2017, Flintshire will be making its Earth Hour matter by encouraging its workforce to turn off all non-essential electrical equipment. The Council is also encouraging local residents, businesses and community groups to switch off for #EarthHourWales. 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. If you are interested in planning an Earth Hour event in Flintshire, please contact Leanna Jones, Home Energy Conservation Officer on 01352 703766.
