Earth Hour Celebration in Windsor

March 15, 2017

Windsor ON: Once again, City of Windsor residents will join millions of people world-wide to celebrate Earth Hour.  The City, Caesars Windsor and ENWIN Utilities will host a free public celebration Saturday, March 25th starting at 8 p.m. at Charles Clark Square.

The celebration will begin with videos highlighting Earth Hour and ENWIN’s electricity and water services to our community.  At 8:30pm, all power will be shut off and participants will be entertained during Earth Hour with a drumming circle, candle dance, poetry reading, choir and drumming band. There will also be earth-friendly food and beverages for purchase.  

Since 2009, the City of Windsor has celebrated Earth Hour by turning off all non-essential lighting at City facilities.  As always, we hope this event will highlight to our commitment to working together as a community to conserve all our precious commodities and natural resources.

Earth Hour is a global initiative that was started ten years ago by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and is usually held on the last Saturday of March – closely coinciding with the equinox to ensure most cities are in darkness as it rolls out around the Earth.  

The underlining purpose of “Earth Hour” is to send a powerful national and global message that it is possible to take action on climate change and that individual actions do make a difference.
