Fourth annual Earth Hour torchlit walk
Healthwalks is holding its fourth annual Earth Hour torchlit walk on the seafront on March 31 from 7pm, starting at the bandstand.
The walkers will go to the pier and back to time with Earth Hour at 8.30pm and an African Choir will round off the evening.
Go to www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/healthwalks for more information or to complete the health questionnaire before the walk.
What is Earth Hour?
At 8.30pm on March 31, more than 140 countries and more than 28 million people will register to take part in Earth Hour by switching off lights and power for one hour.
Earth Hour has been running for five years and is headed by WWF.
The aim is to promote awareness of the effects of climate change and to reduce waste of resources.
It started in Sydney with the switching off of the Opera House and has progressed to include, The Sunset Strip, Golden Gate Bridge, Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament, The London Eye, Christ the Redeemer, Eiffel Tower, The Acropolis, Brighton Wheel and many, many more public buildings and icons around the world.
Go to the Earth Hour website and watch the video for an idea of how amazing this event is and register to take part for the hour or for the long term.
This year WWF is asking everyone to commit to changing one thing about their lives to help reduce waste.
You can refuse straws with your drinks, turn your shower down a few degrees and have a shorter one, walk instead of driving short journeys and for more ideas take a look at the website.
We only have One Planet and with the rate we are using its resources we will need 3 to sustain us.
