OCAD participates in Earth Hour 2008


See your world in a whole new light

 
DateSunday, March 30, 2008 - 12:00am to 1:00am

Location

Main Campus 100 McCaul St., Toronto, Ontario

OCAD will power down on Saturday, March 29, 2008, for one hour starting at 8 pm, as part of Earth Hour 2008.

Earth Hour originated as an event in Sydney, Australia last year, as businesses and households turned off their lights for one hour to send a powerful national and global message that it’s possible to take action on global warming.

This year Earth Hour has become a global opportunity to take a stand on the greatest threat our planet has ever faced, as millions of people unit to turn the tide on global warming. OCAD is proud to participate, and will do so by turning off all lights and powering down all non-essential equipment in order to make the most impact towards reducing energy consumption.

Earth Hour is an event everyone can participate in—at home, at work, at school—anywhere. Simply turn out the lights on Saturday, March 29, for an hour, at 8 pm. To learn more about how you can live a more sustainable lifestyle, or sign up for the challenge, visit the Earth Hour website.
