Earth Hour takes on the climate challenge
Ban Ki-moon, Secretario General de Naciones Unidas
In this critically important year for the planet’s climate, as the world’s governments meet in Paris at year end to agree a global climate deal that will avoid the worst consequences of climate change, Earth Hour has taken up the climate challenge – in the links to the right see UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressing his support for Earth Hour. Actions range from lobbying for access to renewable energy in Nepal, a ban on arctic oil exploitation in Russia, and stopping deforestation in Uganda. Renewable energy is promoted in India and Colombia, and in education programmes in China and Sweden. And on the night events across the globe inspire people to use their power to change climate change. Results of Earth Hour 2015 will be featured in the next Conservation Highlights.
