Woking Borough Council is supporting Earth Hour, the global environmental movement that highlights the collective impact of small actions.

From 8.30pm on Saturday March 23, the council will join millions across the world to mark WWF's Earth Hour by switching off its lights in the Civic Offices for one hour to show its support in protecting the future of the planet.

Cllr Peter Graves, Woking Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for a Greener Woking, said: "As the home of WWF-UK, we are proud to commit to Earth Hour, which globally highlights the importance of tackling the climate crisis facing us all.

“Many of the world's most threatened species like tigers and orangutans live in areas that are being severely affected by climate change. WWF's Earth Hour is showing small steps can work towards a healthier planet.

“It is important we all strive to get involved with Earth Hour. Switching the lights off is a simple action that reaffirms the idea we are strongest in numbers. Even small changes make a difference.”
