Earth hour at our museums and galleries

26 March 2012 by Lisa

Earth Hour 2012

Earth Hour 2012 is taking place on Saturday 31 March at 8.30pm and here at National Museums Liverpool, we are proudly joining in! We will be switching off all external lighting at our museums and galleries where possible, including at World Museum and the Walker Art Gallery. Internal lights will be switched off at Museum of Liverpool.   

To get involved all you have to do is switch off your lights for one hour! More than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2011

The lights at the following landmarks were also switched off in 2011: Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House, The Forbidden City, Buckingham Palace, Golden Gate Bridge and Christ the Redeemer statue. 

It is hoped that this event sends a powerful message for action on climate change and shows how great things can be achieved when people come together for a common cause.  

For more information on this inspiring event visit the Earth Hour website.
