Earth Hour 2014

Earth Hour 2014

On Saturday 29 March at 20:30, the Cathedral will  join a long list of some of the most recognisable icons across the globe and participate in Earth Hour 2014.

The list includes the likes of: the Sydney Opera House; the Tokyo Tower; the Empire State Building; Niagara Falls; The Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace.

Organised by The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Earth Hour is a world wide mass participation event. Born out of a hope that we could mobilise people to take action on climate change, Earth Hour now inspires a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.

This is the sixth year the Cathedral has taken part in the annual event.

All are encouraged to participate in this international event. For more information, please go to
