5:00pm, Saturday March 23, 2013 to 12:00pm, Sunday March 24, 2013
Supported and organized by OCAD University Sustainability Task Force and Sustainability Office
Earth Hour originated as an event in Sydney, Australia in 2007, as businesses and households turned off their lights for one hour to send a powerful national and global message that it is possible to take action on global warming.
OCAD University will power down on Saturday, March 23 for one hour starting at 8:30 p.m. as part of Earth Hour. To allow the institution to prepare for the power-down, OCAD University will close early at 5 p.m. and re-open at 12 p.m. on Sunday, March 24.
OCAD U is proud to participate, and will do so by turning off all lights and powering down all non-essential equipment in order to make the most impact in reducing energy consumption. We strongly encourage everyone to turn off all computers, monitors and other related devices (if you don’t already do so) before you leave the office on Friday, March 22.
Earth Hour is an event everyone can participate in — at home, at work, at school — anywhere. Simply turn out the lights on Saturday, March 23 for an hour or more starting at 8:30 p.m.
This event is part of sMarch, a month long series of sustainability events at OCAD University. To find out more visit ocadu.ca/sMarch.
