Earth Hour @ York U
Mar 28, 2012, 10am-10pm
IRIS is hosting its third annual Earth Hour event in collaboration with human rights and environmental groups from both Keele and Glendon campus.
Earth Hour activities will be happening all day! Presenters include the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada, Earth Rangers and the Sustainable Urban Development Association as well as various York University professors. Come and check out clubs on York Campus and participate in workshops such as lantern making.
This event is free, with lunch and dinner provided. The evening will end with live music and an open mike talent show!
Earth Hour began in 2006 when the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in Sydney, Australia introduced the plan to turn off lights for an hour to take a stand against climate change. Since 2008, Earth Hour has become an international event; Toronto was the first city outside of Sydney to adopt Earth Hour! Earth Hour is a day of celebration and recognition for greater innovation in sustainability. We welcome you to join our Earth Hour event and raise the standard of action against climate change here at York University.
