Earth Hour is a global movement intended to raise awareness of environmental issues. Participants in Earth Hour are encouraged to turn off their lights and appliances for one hour.
This year Roncesvalles Village is getting involved for the first time. A local environmental group, Green 13, in cooperation with the RMRA and the RVBIA, are organizing a candlelight walk up Roncesvalles Avenue, starting at Grafton Parkette and ending at the Revue Cinema.
This will start with a rally at 7:30 at Grafton Parkette, followed by the candlelight walk at 8:30. Local politicians will be in attendance (as well as media), and musicians will perform at various outdoor locations on Roncesvalles during the hour. The MC for the event is local actor and TV personality Diego Fuentes Lopez.
Over the next few days, volunteers will be visiting businesses on Roncesvalles Avenue with posters or ribbons which you can display to show your support for Earth Hour.
