As many of you may know, Earth Hour 2014 is just around the corner! On Saturday, March 29th at 8:30pm, the City of Saskatoon will join others from across Saskatoon (and around the world) to take part in this global event to acknowledge the importance of environmental awareness and action, during and beyond the hour.
This year, the City of Saskatoon is inviting community associations, businesses, organizations, students and community members to share their Earth Hour stories online. An online forum is available at http://shapingsaskatoon.ca/forums/earth-hour for people to post why they feel earth hour is important, how they’ve participated in the past, and what they’re planning this year. We hope members of your community association will consider contributing to this online discussion, as well as help us spread the word by sharing this opportunity with friends, family, and colleagues.
Saskatoon Transit is also offering FREE Transit on Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 7:30 pm until 1:00 am as a way of showing support for action on climate change. Reduce your footprint and save money by giving transit a try!
We also encourage you to post your Earth Hour photos online to show the world how you’re participating in Earth Hour! Simply post your photos to your Facebook or Twitter account on March 29 with the hashtag #yxeEarthHour to show how you’re taking action on climate change. Two lucky winners will be drawn to receive a 1 month bus pass and transit promo prize pack from Saskatoon Transit!
