Starting at 7.00pm, volunteers began forming the message with candles so that at Earth Hour’s 8.30pm start the letters could be lit.
The result was a striking communication of “Earth Hour 2012” across the playing fields within the Brickfields area of Worcester, visible from houses and the railway.
The event worked well as a promotion of the Earth Hour name and its message of action for climate change. Though small, it shows that Worcester can become more and more involved with this global environmental message, and Roots intends to make the event bigger again next year.
Originating in Sydney, Australia, it now boasts the largest single organisation of people making an environmental statement annually on March 31st. To read more and get involved for next year visit their website here.
