Earth Hour - 2009 Mar 31
On Saturday, March 28, 2009, at 8:30 pm, the TSAVLIRIS team took part in Earth Hour, the world's largest global climate change event. By simply turning off all non-essential lighting for one hour at our company buildings and in our own homes, we joined tens of millions of concerned citizens throughout the world in calling for action to save our planet for future generations.
Earth Hour is an event led by the World Wildlife Fund. In 2008, more than 50 million people in 370 cities around the world took part, as the lights dimmed at Sydney's Opera House, Rome's Coliseum, the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge. Even the Google homepage went dark for the day. This year, Earth Hour was even bigger. In Greece, cities large and small participated. They joined international cities such as Auckland, Beijing, Bogota, Cape Town, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Kiev, Kuala Lumpur, Lisbon, London, Manila, Mexico City, Moscow, New York, Oslo, Paris, Rome, Singapore, Shanghai, Sydney, Toronto, Vancouver, and Warsaw. Energy efficiency isn't just good for the bottom line. We all have a stake in the future of our planet and must learn to operate in ways that don't deplete our world's limited natural resources.
