Want to be able to see the stars for once within the city limits?  Want to show that you are concerned about the environment?  Well, Earth Hour 2012 will give you that opportunity to do just that.

Scouts and people alike from around  the world are called upon to participate in Earth Hour 2012.  Earth Hour 2012 will be from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. this Saturday, March 31st, 2012.  During the span of one hour, millions of people from across the world will turn off their lights.

Earth Hour originated from and inspired by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) of Australia in 2007.  The initiative quickly caught on across the globe.  In 2011, hundreds of millions of people from 135 countries took part in this annual event.  The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) supports this global initiative and invites all Scouts to join in.

What to do?  Simply turn off your lights for an hour between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (your local time).  Have fun, be safe, and let’s turn off the lights!
