Earth Hour - Saturday 31 March

Tuesday, 13 March 2012 10:00 a.m.

Earth Hour, taking place on Saturday 31 March is an international event to raise awareness on environmental issues and inspire local community action. Tauranga has supported Earth Hour for the past three years and this year has partnered with WWF who coordinate the event globally, to be the lead city in New Zealand for Earth Hour 2012.

This decision has been made due to our experience with the Rena disaster, which has provided a strong reminder of the importance of our natural environment and also inspired such a positive community response to assist with the clean up.

So, Earth Hour this year will acknowledge and celebrate those community efforts and encourage future action for the benefit of our beautiful environment .
