Earth Hour 2018

Louth is taking part once again in International Earth Hour which takes place this Saturday night March 24th between 8.30pm and 9.30pm. Louth County Council will turn off the lights on many of its public buildings for an hour to support this global initiative which brings millions of people across the world together to call for greater action on climate change. The lights are due to be turned off at County Hall in Dundalk and the Viaduct Bridge in Drogheda.

Each year hundreds of people around the world switch off their lights and organise events at home, in their community or towns and cities to show they care about the future of the planet.

We are encouraging local business and schools to get involved in Earth Hour by switching off all lights and appliances that are not required, lights some candles, spend time with family or friends or go for a walk but please spend time to consider our energy consumption!
