60 minutes - Earth Hour.

Now there’s an intriguing title! That’s the theme of this year’s Earth Hour campaign. At the start of what can be described as a banner year by all accounts, and with so much going on no matter what country you live in, it seems there is a push for humanity as a whole to speak out and be heard.

Under those circumstances, the Earth Hour project is suggesting that we all “Vote Earth”. You can see the ad for yourself, or look at the You Tube video by clicking on the arrow at the bottom right of the screen that will open up.

“Earth Hour” is a yearly event during which citizens in cities around the world choose to turn off their lights (and every other electronic thing) for one hour. Just 60 minutes. In my time zone, it will be just sunset, which is perfect for a few games or just sitting outside and enjoy the cooling weather (after a day that is likely to be pretty hot).

I’ll do it. Will you?

Feel free to leave a comment about this if you care. I’d love to hear your ideas on what to do during an hour “off the grid”. And remember, you can find out which cities already have major events going on at the Earth Hour website. If you wish, you can even attempt to organize something in your neighborhood, your community, or your town, by checking out the various tools in the “tools” section
