Ministry provides group with 25 solar lanterns for Earth Hour 2013
The Ministry of Energy and Energy Affairs has delivered 25 solar-powered lanterns to environmental group, Earth Strong T&T (ESTT), with whom it has partnered to observe Earth Hour 2013 on March 23 at 8.30 to 9.30pm. The lanterns will be used at ESTT’s candlelight concert at the Hilton poolside on that date.
During Earth Hour, now observed for the ninth year, millions of people around the globe switch off their lights in their local times. A global climate change initiative started by the World Wildlife Fund, this event aims to create awareness on how individuals can collectively take responsibility towards a sustainable future through simple actions such as turning the lights off.
This initiative is part of the Ministry’s energy conservation and energy efficiency campaign, which aims to empower individuals to become directly responsible for their energy usage through simple practices in their everyday lives, with the underlying premise that small changes can make a big difference. This campaign takes the form of a media campaign as well as a school outreach programme.
The ministry will also be providing support to ESTT through other activities related to the Earth Hour initiative. For more information on the Ministry’s educational energy campaign, go to the website, www.myenergytt.com, join the Facebook page (MyEnergyTT) and follow on Twitter.
