Earth Hour 2014

“Let us stand together to make of our world a sustainable source for our future as humanity on this planet” quoted by Nelson Mandela.

An event with more than 6,950 cities and towns, across 152 countries and territories participating, Concord College was not an exception. Just a week before the end of term exams, members of Eco Club sacrificed their hours of revision time to organize this wonderful event. Not only did it generate opportunities for students to shine, it also gathered over 100 people under a warm and fragrant atmosphere. West End was enchantingly transformed into a Brighter World on the 23th March, 2014. Exclusive song compositions from students were sang, drum beats were dropped, freshly made snacks were nibbled. Nevertheless, the Treasure Hunt was the highlight of the night! Congratulations to those students who managed to turn the West End upside down to find those Easter Eggs. Hope they will spend their 10 pounds Asda gift cards wisely. Earth hour has implicitly created a lovely break for restless students to leave their books behind for some fresh air. Within a light-less and only hour of time, we managed to save a certain amount of electricity as all the students rallied together and put their hands together. It was such an accomplishment when everyone was striving for a better and more sustainable future as our ultimate goal.
