Don Foster MP switches off for WWF’s Earth Hour to show support for Rio environment summit

The Rio carnival comes to the Houses of Parliament as part of WWF’s Earth Hour 2012

Don Foster MP is committing to WWF’s Earth Hour 2012 which is a simple idea that has become a global phenomenon, with hundreds of millions of people turning off their lights on March 31 at 8.30pm to show they want to create a brighter future for the planet. Last year 135 countries, hundreds of millions of people and famous landmarks from Big Ben and Buckingham Palace in London to the India Gate in New Delhi took part in WWF’s Earth Hour.

The global event comes only a few weeks before another vital appointment for the 2012 environment calendar. In June, the Brazilian city famous in the world for its beautiful carnival will host the environment summit and Don Foster MP is already showing his support by signing up to WWF’s Earth Hour.

The Rio summit is a crucial moment for world leaders to discuss vital themes for the future, such as sustainable food, water and energy, and also assess what progress has been made since the first summit twenty years ago.

Don Foster MP said: “I encourage people in Bath to sign up and do something special during Earth Hour: from simply reading a book with your children, to a candlelit dinner party, everyone can show that they care for the environment”.
