The National Library of Wales celebrates WWF’s Earth Hour 2016 with thousands of iconic landmarks across the world, from the Harbour Bridge in Sydney to Times Square in New York, WWF’s Earth Hour – the global celebration of our brilliant planet.
At 8.30pm on Saturday 19 March, The National Library of Wales switched off its lights in support of this year’s Earth Hour campaign.
Hundreds of thousands of people across Wales and millions across the globe take part in Earth Hour every year. Last year, over half a million people in Wales took part as well as 235 schools across the country, sending out a resounding message of love for our planet.
Huw Williams, Head of Estates and Support Services, The National Library of Wales said:
“As an organisation contributing to Wales reaching the Well-being of Future Generations Act goals, we are firmly committed to the principle of sustainable development. Our participation in Earth Hour is symbolic of this commitment and more than apt that one of Wales’ most iconic buildings will be featured”
Anne Meikle, Head of WWF Cymru, said:
“We’re delighted that The National Library of Wales will be taking part in Earth Hour this year and hope that they’ll inspire many others to get involved. By taking one simple step to switch off, you’ll be joining millions of people from around the world in this special celebration.”
Climate change will have a massive impact on our planet. By taking small steps to live more sustainably, we can help tackle it. Taking part in Earth Hour is a symbolic gesture of support for protecting our brilliant planet. Together we can make change happen.
