For one hour this past weekend, people in countries around the world put on a show of support for more sustainable environmental future.
It was, by the way, a dark and peaceful show of support, by turning off unnecessary lights from 8:30 to 9:30.
The movement started in Sydney Australia nine years ago, by the world wide fund for nature. Now the event is marked in 172 nations including Cayman with a candlelight picnic at dart family park.
“We hope to draw attention to the problem of climate change , and also , to join with the rest of the world , the rest of the international community , to show that ordinary people support making some changes going to more alternative sources of energy.” said Catherine Childs from the National Trust.
For example, electric vehicle re-charging stations that are starting to pop up around the island.
Acoustic music was also part of the Saturday night event.
