SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (e-Travel Blackboard (press release)) - Dubai is gearing up to turn off the lights on 26 March for Earth Hour, a global call for action on climate change.

Created by the WWF [World Wildlife Fund] and launched in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour encourages everyone to reduce the levels of greenhouse gas emissions and environmental pollution by staying in the dark for 60 minutes.

This year, Emirates Wildlife Society [EWS] in association with WWF is organizing a Beyond The Hour call to action where people can upload photographs showcasing their commitment to a sustainable lifestyle at www.ewswwf.ae/earthhour.

UAE ‘green’ icon Shaikh Abdul Aziz Al Nuaimi – also known as the ‘Green Shaikh’, has already uploaded photos demonstrating his commitment to the environment.

Ida Tillisch, Acting Director General of the Emirates Wildlife Society in association with WWF [EWS-WWF] emphasizes small changes can go a long way in incorporating environmentally sustainable practices into one’s lifestyle.

“Washing your car with a bucket instead of a hose, or switching your lights to high efficiency bulbs, helps,” Ms Tillisch said.

“Organizations can go beyond the hour by empowering an environmental team and all employees to translate the Earth Hour message into ongoing initiatives that reduce water and electricity consumption at work.”
