Owners of property in St George are encouraged to get involved in this year's Earth Hour, from 8:30 pm until 9:30 pm this Saturday (March 29).
The Kogarah City Council is suggesting residents "flick the switch" this weekend to show their commitment to a more sustainable future.
The council has been a firm supporter of the annual event since it first started in Sydney seven years ago.Cities across the globe switch off their lights for an hour every year to show solidarity to the cause.
Parents are presented with the perfect opportunity to teach their kids about sustainable environmental practices, with the event serving as a significant tool to draw awareness the world over.
Residents of real estate in St George can also pledge they will take part in Earth Hour via the local council website.
The council is also keen to hear from local families, couples and seniors who may have ideas about tackling climate change.
"At its heart, Earth Hour is about communities and the beautiful, bold idea that all of us together can inspire action on climate change," notes the council.
Whether you've got some innovative ideas or simply want to "flick the switch", be sure to get involved as a valued resident of the St George area.
