The aim of Earth hour 2020 Newbury is to raise awareness about Global warming, the threat to nature by human activities and make a pledge to protect and preserve the earth and reduce threat to environment.

Newbury is set to join a global campaign along with London, Paris, New York, Delhi, Singapore and Sydney.

Rotarians in Newbury are launching a campaign to raise awareness about global warming and the urgency for action to protect the environment.

The climax will be a public gathering at the market square on Saturday, 28th March 2020 at 7:00-8:00pm.

In 2019 such gatherings called ‘Earth Hour’ took place in 188 countries and billions of people gathered to make a pledge to protect the environment. From Germany to Morocco to Indonesia, Earth Hour 2019 mobilised people across the world to speak up on issues such as sustainable lifestyles, plastic-free oceans, deforestation and water conservation.

Peru pushed for the introduction of zero-plastic legislation. Earth Hour worked with schools in Bhutan to promote greener lifestyles. Here in the UK, millions of you took part and many pledged to change their lifestyle too.

Hundreds of landmarks across the UK switched off their lights as a visual display of their commitment to the future of the planet – The Shard, Piccadilly Circus, Carnaby Street, Big Ben, London Eye, Buckingham Palace, and Edinburgh Castle to name a few. The world’s biggest landmarks also switched off – such as the Sydney Opera House, Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal.
