29 Mar Earth Hour 2019
Fun things to do this Earth Hour
We know, we know if you’re in South Africa we’ve just come out of rolling back-outs and in all likelihood you’re a bit tired of sitting in the dark BUT this time it’s for a cause, a good one.
This time it won’t just be us South Africans in the dark, Earth Hour is a global initiative to create awareness and to pledge your care and concern for OUR planet!
“From pushing for environmentally-friendly laws and policies to crowd funding for a better future, YOU make Earth Hour possible. Coordinated by WWF and other volunteer organisations, Earth Hour’s greatest strength is the power of people.”

Feeling a bit more adventurous?
There sure are, you can find out if any are near you here:
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden will be hosting WWF Earth hour Adventure:
Participants will get to explore the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden ( CPT) and Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden ( JHB) by torchlight, while navigating their way to the hidden WWF check points dotted across a 5km course. The event is open to participants of all ages. Those wishing to take part in the orienteering-style ‘adventure dash’ will need to be equipped with headlamps and a keen sense of night-time navigation. Families are encouraged to bring blankets and a picnic basket to enjoy the evening.
