Earth Hour 2010

An hour for the environment

At NH we care about the environment which is why this year we will be participating in Earth Hour.The big switch off will take place on Saturday the 27th of March between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.

The campaign launched by the WWF aims to raise awareness about climate change. Anyone can participate in Earth Hour; all you have to do is turn off the lights!

At NH we will turn off the lights on the façades of 289 of our hotel establishments during Earth Hour. This will include some of our most emblematic hotels, such as the NH Constanza in Barcelona, the NH Amsterdam Centre in Holland, and the NH City & Tower in Argentina.

NH Constanza will be switching their lights off, will you?

NH Constanza will be switching their lights off, will you?

So if you’re wondering what to do during the hour of darkness? Here are just a few ideas:

  • How about an hour of meditation in the dark?
  • Or a game of torch lit hide and seek?
  • A shadow puppet show using candle lamps and cut-out figures
  • A candlelit dinner?

If none of these ideas take your fancy then you can participate in one of the many events being held around the globe to celebrate Earth Hour. From an outdoor concert in Madrid to watching the lights on the Eiffel tower fade in Paris…

    My friend just told me about this. I guess if I’m out and about I’m subconsciously doing it, but it doesn’t seem voluntary…

    I’d also freak out if the lights went out on the metro!

    Spead the word! Everyone needs to take part in Earth Hour. Can you imagine what an impact it would make if everyone in the world took part?! Total blackout for an hour! I know that in London they are turning out the light on some of the most famous landmarks-exiting! Love the blog NH, let me know when there are new posts to read. Emma

    Unfortunately, I’m not in Madrid or Paris so I won’t be able to take part in the events you mentioned but I will take part in the comfort of my living room at home with a few candles!

    I’ve just heard about this on the local news and then came across the blog when searching for something to do during Earth Hour. I like the torch light hide and seek idea, sounds like fun!

    I went with a few awesome people I know to the Retiro Park in Madrid too, the time went really quickly and I think it was good doing a bit for the planet.
