The Pearl-Qatar plans several activities for Earth Hour including environment slogan competition
The Pearl-Qatar will observe for the fifth consecutive year the worldwide occasion of Earth Hour with additional activities that will accompany the typical switch-off to include an environmental slogan competition and a tree planting initiative.
Lights at The Pearl-Qatar will be dimmed Saturday, March 28, from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm to join millions around the world in celebrating Earth Hour, a global grassroots movement encouraging individuals, businesses and governments to take positive actions for the environment, and celebrate their commitment to the planet by switching off non-essential lights for one designated hour.
Exterior lighting, non-essential interior lights and lights at many of The Pearl-Qatar’s residential units and retail outlets and restaurants will be turned off or dimmed considerably during the celebration. Additionally, as an annual tradition, the Earth Hour logo 60+ will be displayed on Porto Arabia’s Boardwalk using eco-friendly solar lights.
In tandem with the day’s activities, The Pearl-Qatar’s Environment Department is launching a competition for the best ten environmental slogans, while the winners will participate in planting a tree on the Island’s Grand Park with the slogan and author’s name imprinted on a specially crafted placard.
Submissions will be received by email on email@example.com or through The Pearl-Qatar’s social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram no later than March 14. Winners of the best environment slogans will also receive a certificate acknowledging their effort with details of their tree.
