Earth Hour is a worldwide event to continue the conversation about how limiting our energy use can reduce our impact on the environment. Check back in March 2017 for Earth Hour events.
Earth Hour - March 2016
The City of Calgary hosted Calgary Unplugged, a family-friendly Earth Hour event on St. Patrick's Island. The event featured bike-powered music and lights, an interactive Earth Hour photo booth and free hot chocolate served in compostable cups. Event-goers took part in an LED lantern and drum parade to signal the start of Earth Hour.
The City participates in Earth Hour every year by shutting off all non-essential and decorative lighting in various buildings and bridges for one hour. Beyond the hour, The City continues to find new opportunities to reduce energy use every day.
