Themed “This Earth Hour, Shine a Light on Climate Action”, the event is part of the intergovernmental coordination efforts in the emirate of Sharjah and in line with the corporate social responsibility commitment.
The activities will begin at 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm and will include an awareness exhibition about Earth Hour, a themed wall graphic, selfies, educational workshops, audience competitions, entertaining clowns, glowing T-shirts and other giveaways and educational brochures.

reducing the carbon footprint and
emissions that threaten our environment in any way.”
