ORANJESTAD – Our house is our planet. Do we take good care of it? Not always, but for sure we can make an effort as every energy counts. Make a promise for the planet coming Saturday at 8.30 PM during Earth Hour. The initiative, coordinated by World Wildlife Fund (WWF), is supported by the Earth Hour Aruba Community Group. Join in and cherish your earth.
Earth Hour Aruba Community Group was founded in March 2011, and despite the shortage of time the
Group managed to inspire a large number of households and organizations to participate in Earth Hour. For the initiatives and efforts undertaken Aruba has been recognized as a participating EH country. Earth Hour Aruba Community Group was founded with the goal to encourage as many individuals and organizations to be part of Earth Hour and to commit to initiatives to save our planet Earth.

Earth Hour started as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now the world’s
largest grassroots movement for the environment, inspiring millions of people to take action for our
planet and nature. From pushing for environmentally-friendly laws and policies to crowdfunding for a
better future, YOU make Earth Hour possible, says their website. Coordinated by WWF and other
volunteer organizations, Earth Hour’s greatest strength is the power of people. As accelerating climate
change and staggering biodiversity loss threaten our planet, Earth Hour 2018-2020 endeavors to spark never-before-had conversations on the loss of nature and the urgent need to protect it. Let’s show the world that the people of our lovely nation Aruba can stand as one to make a substantial contribution to this global event.
