Earth Hour – Your Hostel is taking part!
On March 29th, at 20:30 o‘ clock millions of people around the world will be celebrating Earth Hour. The project originates from Australia, where it was first held in 2007 and it was initiated by WWF - The World Wildlife Fund and also supported by The United Nations.
It has now spread all over the world and last year people in 135 countries took part.
The numerous people, households, companies and municipalities taking part in
Earth Hour will turn off all but the essential ligths and take an hour to think about the environment and raise awareness on the link between energy use, climate change and the welfare of the Earth.
The HI-Iceland hostels will be taking part, so be prepared for lights to be off between 20:30-21:30. Several hostels will have a programme for guests to join in, such as candle workshops, reading ghost stories, playing cards and unplugged music by candlelight.
Enjoy a nice moment and chat to your fellow guests in the common area of the hostel - just make sure to walk carefully in the dark. And remember to apply careful use of energy in the future – both when travelling and at home.
