EU institutions join 157 countries for WWF’s Earth Hour 2014
Brussels – Tomorrow the EU Institutions and supportive EU politicians will switch off their lights for one hour, in a symbolic gesture for Earth Hour - the world’s biggest environmental action to protect the planet. WWF calculates that if everyone in the world lived as the average European does, we’d need 2.8 planets to support us, but by making small changes every day we can make our daily lives more sustainable.
“We are delighted that Members of the European Parliament and other European Institutions have given their support to this year’s Earth Hour. And particularly now, with the upcoming European elections it’s important that the European Parliament shows its commitment to work on policies that bring Europe on a more sustainable path, whilst creating green jobs and solid socio-economic stability.
They join 157 countries worldwide in the largest environmental action in history. Iconic landmarks such as Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, the Acropolis, the Colosseum and the Sydney Opera House all switched off and hundreds of local communities, schools and businesses took part.
