#EarthHour is this Saturday. Not the same as #EarthDay!
There’s often confusion between these 2 events.
What is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour is on the last day of March, for one hour, at 8:30pm. Earth Hour was started by WWF in Australia in 2007 to show support for climate change action. Did you know that the City of Toronto, in Canada, was the first city to join in, outside Australia? More info at: www.earthhour.org
Turning your lights off for an hour ain’t gonna save the planet by itself! It’s just a gesture to show that we care about our blue planet and we are willing to “do something”.
Nowadays, it’s more than just turning your lights off. Since last year, it’s about making a commitment to lasting action on climate change - whatever it is that you can do.
At Total Diving - Montreal Scuba, we’ve made numerous commitment to ocean conservation, shark conservation, sustainable scuba diving, and responsible actions by scuba divers.
What is Earth Day?
Earth Day is… A Day. No kidding! It started in the USA and it happens on April 22.
Earth Day is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for our natural environment.
Your Montreal scuba diving PADI center has planned a full weekend of activities for Saturday & Sunday, April 21 & 22, including a Dive Against Debris event on Saturday and a training session on shark conservation in Montreal, on Sunday morning April 22.
