On Saturday, March 28th, from 8:30pm-9:30pm, Roosevelt University will proudly join 162 countries and territories worldwide in the famous Earth Hour Lights Off Event, 2015.

Earth Hour, a nonprofit organization out of Singapore, was originally started as a Lights Out Event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. This organization has the goal of uniting people from all walks of life to help combat global climate change through solidarity. This is an iconic event that Roosevelt has participated in the past few years, and we hope that students, faculty, and staff will join in this movement too!

Accept this challenge, and turn your lights off for an hour- you can make it your one hour break from homework, turn it into a dance party, meditate, breathe, or simply close your eyes and take a nap. But don’t forget, this isn’t JUST about turning lights off for an hour- it is also about becoming more aware of how we depend on and react with everyday essentials that also impact our environment in potentially negative ways. An hour is not long, but we hope that it is long enough to have students, faculty, and staff stop and think and become encouraged to go beyond the hour, and incorporate sustainability into everyday life.
