Angus MP Mike Weir has signed up to support this year’s Earth Hour by making a special pledge to help protect the planet.
Mr Weir was one of many joining WWF in London this week to make their ‘starry’ themed wishes, ahead of the global lights out event, due to take place on Saturday, March 29, at 8.30 p.m.
MPs were inspired to celebrate Earth Hour as a reminder to do their bit for the planet and advocate within their constituencies for the importance of building a sustainable future for both people and the planet.
Mike Weir MP said: “Our natural world is precious to all life that inhabits it, but we need to do more to protect it.
“WWF’s Earth Hour reminds us that there are simple things we can all do for the planet, not for just one hour, but every day. It’s a great opportunity to bring together millions of people from across the world with one united goal - to help protect our planet.”
Earth Hour sees millions of people around the world coming together to switch off their lights for one hour in a symbolic act of support to show they care about our planet.
WWF already works to tackle a lot of environmental challenges and the impacts of climate change – but Earth Hour is a chance for everyone to say they’ll do their bit.
Last year, Earth Hour bought together over 10 million people in the UK, and 154 countries took part. Iconic landmarks such as Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower and the Sydney Opera House all switched off and hundreds of local communities, schools and businesses took part.
WWF will be helping to create a brighter future for the Mara. All of the money raised from Earth Hour is going towards WWF’s vital conservation work in the Mau Mara Serengeti, Kenya, which is one of the most spectacular places on Earth.
