Under the slogan “USE YOUR POWER to Change Climate Change”, The Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) marked Earth Hour on Saturday, 28th March 2015, for the eighth consecutive year to raise awareness on the impact of climate change and excessive energy consumption.
The RSCN organized a series of lectures, environmental games and ended the celebration of the event with a candle-lit march down Rainbow Street in Jabal Amman, where the event was sponsored by Hikma Pharmaceuticals. The RSCN also turned off its lights at Wild Jordan and all of its nature reserves to mark Earth Hour.
Earth Hour began in one city, in one country on Saturday 31 March 2007, when 2.2 million individuals in Sydney, Australia turned off their lights for one hour to stand up for action on climate change. Just one year on, participation in 370 cities and towns in more than 35 countries, turned this single-city initiative into a global sustainability movement, with an estimated 50 to 100 million people around the world switching off their lights for Earth Hour.
Earth Hour is a universal message of hope and action, a community-driven movement limited only by the collective will of the world to want to protect it. Together our actions add up.
