Local MP makes Earth Hour pledge for climate change
Vale of Clwyd MP, Dr James Davies, has signed up to support WWF’s tenth Earth Hour by making a special pledge to help protect the planet. Dr Davies MP is one of many who joined WWF at the House of Commons this week to show they care about the future of our planet, ahead of the global lights out event, taking place on Saturday 25 March at 8:30pm.
Dr James Davies MP said: “I am delighted to support WWF’s Earth Hour this year to demonstrate how important it is that we take climate change seriously. I am proud to be a member of a parliament which has set ambitious targets to reduce our carbon emissions over the coming decades, and I will continue to urge the UK government to outline clear plans in order to live up to these ambitions.”
Each year, millions of people around the world come together to call for action to protect our brilliant planet. Last year a record 178 countries took part and iconic landmarks across the UK switched out their lights, from Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, to Brighton Pier, Edinburgh Castle and Caerphilly Castle. This year is set to be the biggest yet as it’s the 10 year anniversary of Earth Hour.
Everyone can join in WWF’s Earth Hour on Saturday 25 March 2017. For more information and to sign up please visit wwf.org.uk/2017earthhour
