Join the rest of the world in a simple way to help reduce some of the harm we’re causing this planet we live in (if you wanna continue on living in it), by simply switching off your lights for just one hour.
All around the world, people are joining in this fight against Climate Change or better known as Global Warming (they're not the same, though). Kuwait is one of 84 countries voting for Earth. Supported by the Voluntary Work Center, & with permission from the WWF, The Kuwait Team for Global Warming is organizing a special Earth Hour* day promoting & raising awareness for this event on Sat March 28, 2009. The event will be held in the Green Island & will start at 4:00-10:00 p.m. People will be learning more about this issue, as well as enjoying a packed up day full of events, & will be witnessing & participating in a global event thus making a stand against global warming & helping save the planet. Earth Hour will be as it always is, from 8:30 to 9:30 that night.
I’ve attended a seminar about the issue held by the team on March 11, 2009, & the even though there were no significant visitors, the spirit of the team was not down at all. They’ve conducted the seminar gracefully & we really had fun. Here are some of the pics I’ve taken:

"Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund), held on the last Saturday of March, that asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. Based on an idea successfully executed in Thailand in 2005, it was pioneered by WWF Australia and the Sydney Morning Herald in 2007, and achieved worldwide participation in 2008.
Earth Hour will next take place on Saturday, March 28, 2009 at 8:30 pm, local time." -Wikipedia.
