Council joins WWF Earth hour switch off

On Saturday 19 March 2016, at 8.30pm Dumfries and Galloway Council will join millions across the world to celebrate World Wide Fund for Nature’s (WWF’s) Earth Hour and switch off their lights for one hour to show they care about the future of our brilliant planet.

By joining the global celebration, Dumfries and Galloway Council will take part in a symbolic moment, not designed to have impact through an hour of energy saving, but to help put a spotlight on the issues facing the planet and to remind us that, together, we have the power to make change happen.

To celebrate the global event, the council will be switching off the lights at Council HQ, Dumfries between Friday PM and Monday PM.

Councillor Colin Smyth, Chairman of the Economy, Environment and Infrastructure Committee at the Council said: said: “We are proud to take part in WWF’s Earth Hour and are excited to be involved with such a great and inspiring event.”
