CARIBBEAN LIFESTYLE COMMUNICATIONS IS PROUD TO PARTNER WITH THE WWF (WORLD WILDLIFE FUND) FOR EARTH HOUR 2011.
In 2007 in Sydney, Australia, 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. By 2008, only one year later, Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries/territories participating. Global landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, CN Tower in Toronto, Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.
In March 2009, hundreds of millions of people took part in the third Earth Hour. Over 4000 cities in 88 countries/territories officially switched off to pledge their support for the planet, making Earth Hour 2009 the world’s largest global climate change initiative.
On Saturday 27 March, Earth Hour 2010 became the biggest Earth Hour ever. A record 128 countries and territories joined the global display of climate action. Iconic buildings and landmarks from Asia Pacific to Europe and Africa to the Americas switched off. People across the world from all walks of life turned off their lights and came together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet.
Earth Hour 2011 will take place on Saturday 26 March at 8.30PM (local time). This Earth Hour we want you to go beyond the hour, so after the lights go back on think about what else you can do to make a difference. Together our actions add up.
More news on Earth Hour 2011:
Diverse iconic landmarks join hundreds of millions of people across the planet to switch off for Earth Hour 2011 including: Gateway of India, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil, Taiwan’s 101 Financial Building, and UNESCO World Heritage sites Denmark’s Kronborg Castle and the Alhambra in Spain, Pakistan’s National Mausoleum, Berlin’s Brandenberg Gate, Tokyo Tower and the Obelisk in Argentina, all standing in darkness for one hour, representative of the world’s largest voluntary action for the planet.
At 8.30pm local time on Saturday 26 March, 2011, these landmarks will join with people from community, business and government, all over the world to turn off their lights for Earth Hour, transcending barriers of race, religion, culture, society, generation and geography in a global celebration of their commitment to protect the one thing that unites us all – the planet.
From Boudhanath Stupa in Nepal, to Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque, the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates, Santa Maria del Mar Basilica in Spain, Ngoc Son Temple in Vietnam, Budapest Great Synagogue and the Helsinki Cathedral in Finland. From natural wonders Table Mountain in South Africa and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, to China World Trade Centre Tower 3 (the tallest building in Beijing).
From the Taj Hotels in Mumbai and Delhi, London’s The Savoy and Royal Albert Hall, to the Presidential Palace in Peru, Thailand’s Royal Palace, the Presidential Palace in Honduras and the Royal Castle in Sweden, to the largest single housing estate in Nigeria, the Gwarimpa Housing Estate.
“These landmarks act as powerful symbols of what we can achieve when we unite for a common purpose; a visually spectacular reminder of what can be done when individuals, organisations and governments act together,” said Andy Ridley, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Earth Hour.
“These icons are representative of the diverse communities across the planet that come together for Earth Hour. By the simple act of switching off the lights, they become part of a celebration of what has been done, and a renewed commitment to take action for the planet beyond the hour.”
Australian cultural icon the Sydney Opera House will switch off for its fifth Earth Hour alongside the Norwegian Opera House in Oslo, Norway, the Hanoi Opera House in Vietnam, the Ankara Opera House in Turkey, and the Hong Kong’s Cultural Centre, which will go dark as Hong Kong’s Symphony of Lights - the world's largest permanent light and sound show - is suspended for a night.
The Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul, Turkey that connects Asia and Europe will join with the 25 April Bridge in Portugal, Puente de la Mujer in Argentina, Liberty Bridge in Budapest, Hungary, and the UNESCO listed, reconstructed Old Bridge in Bosnia, in going dark.
We invite citizens throughout Trinidad & Tobago to join in this global effort and support Earth Hour 2011! SATURDAY 26th MARCH at 8:30 P.M.!

CL Communications' cable television subsidiary - IE TV Channel 1 - will host the 2009 Independence Day fireworks celebrations in collaboration with Firepower Fireworks on Monday 31st August 2009.
There will be two venues for the celebrations - Queens Park Savannah in Port of Spain and the San Fernando Hill.
"On Trinidad & Tobago's 47th anniversary of Independence, the opportunity to sponsor this event could not be missed! As a media group which has always prided ourselves on being for the people and with the people, I felt it would be depriving many families of something they have traditionally looked forward to on the holiday,if we did not do this. In San Fernando hundreds of cars line the San Fernando Hill, Golconda, Pleasantville and surrounding areas to see the fireworks display, likewise in Port of Spain. 'Celebrating Our Heritage' is IE TV's position, and that's exactly what we're going to do on Independence with the fireworks display & celebration!" said CL Communications Chairman Mr. Anthony Maharaj. Mr. Maharaj added that the Trinidad & Tobago Police Service will be out and about on the evening of the display, so families can rest assured that they will be in safe hands and can relax and enjoy the fireworks.
Firepower Fireworks' Director, Mr. Khalid Ghany, has been the display operator for the pyrotechnics for this event in the past, and has worked closely with the CL Communications Network on the Plymouth Jazz Festival in Tobago. Mr. Ghany was adamant in continuing the event this year and sought the cooperation of CL Communications in an effort to do so. Firepower will also be executing the fireworks display for the Independence Day celebrations in Tobago.
Trinidad & Tobago's Newsday is a co-sponsor of the Independence Day fireworks.
