Abercrombie and Kent is generating support for Earth Hour on March 27 from 8:30-9:30 pm. Earth Hour brings together local communities, corporations and nongovernmental organizations to focus on climate change by inspiring consumers and businesses to turn off their lights for one hour, sending a powerful message about the need for action.
In 2007, 2.2 million people took part in the world’s first Earth Hour, which started in Sydney, Australia. Last year 4,088 cities in 88 countries “switched off” to show their support – ten times more cities than the previous year – the largest voluntary power down in history.
Earth Hour 2010 aims to involve more than one billion people to demonstrate that we care enough about climate change to take action.
Abercrombie & Kent is working with travel industry partners to support this worldwide effort. Using it’s wide spread influence through its 62 offices around the world, Abercrombie and Kent encourages government officials to participate by turning off lights from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Last year Egypt received worldwide attention when it turned off the lights at three major landmarks – the Pyramids and Sphinx, Cairo Tower and Bibliotheca Alexandria.
A & K also asks hotel partners to turn off non-essential lighting and substitute candlelight in restaurants. Thirteen Sanctuary Lodges & Camps in Africa will mark Earth Hour with Bush Dinners under the stars. In the Serengeti at Sanctuary Kusini, guests will enjoy a “cosmic safari” atop a giant kopje boulder with an unobstructed view of the night sky. Celebrate the “dark skies” with stargazing parties. Traveleres can learn about the stars that influenced the Pharaohs aboard the Sun Boats in Egypt and the stars Charles Darwin used to navigate aboard Eclipse in the Galapagos.
