McGill will be participating in the 5th annual Earth Hour on
Saturday, March 26, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. by turning off some
lights on campus for the weekend, beginning on Friday afternoon. We
invite you to do your part before going home on Friday by shutting
off or unplugging office computer equipment, lights and other
non-essential electrical appliances to conserve energy.
McGill students, faculty and staff are also invited to join our
counterparts from Concordia on a flashlight walk up Mount Royal.
Meeting point will be at 7:10 p.m. on the lower field of the McGill
campus, at the goalposts close to the Roddick Gates. The group is
scheduled to arrive at the main lookout on Mount Royal at
approximately 8:15 p.m., an incredible opportunity to watch lights
across the city being turned off and experience the impact of
collective action. Snacks and hot chocolate will be served –
participants are asked to bring their own reusable mugs. For
information about the flashlight walk, please contact Michael
Novack (michael [dot] novack [at] mail [dot] mcgill [dot] ca),
co-ordinator of the World Wildlife Fund McGill student group.
