Earth Hour @ a Green Concert
Posted 06/22/2015 09:58AM

“Earth Hour is a global movement in which over 170 countries and 1,200 landmarks turn off their lights to raise awareness about the importance of climate change and sustainable energy development. The Environmental Pioneers of Middle School Ras Beirut with Ms. Sawsan Kibbi attended Earth Hour Lebanon in Biel. The concert   featured a performance by Anthony Touma and other live performances.  All the energy used for the concert was supplied by solar energy that does not produce any harmful pollutants. It is worth mentioning that Lebanon can save 1,330 tons of carbon dioxide if lights are turned off for one hour. So why don’t we turn of lights today for a brighter future?”
