Bonn again joins Earth Hour

For the twelfth time, the City of Bonn is participating in the so-called "Earth Hour", the worldwide climate protection campaign of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) environmental foundation. To set an example against the waste of resources and for climate protection, the WWF is calling for the 14th time to turn off the lights for one hour.

On the day of action, Saturday, 28 March 2019, from 20.30 to 21.30 hours, the lights will be switched off at numerous well-known municipal buildings. Bonn institutions and companies are also joining the campaign. Deutsche Post DHL has confirmed that Bonn’s Post Tower will remain dark.

The United Nations is also supporting the campaign again, which is why Langer Eugen will remain dark on Bonn’s UN Campus.

The city administration will switch off the lights at town halls, cultural sites and other municipal buildings. In addition, Stadtwerke Bonn will turn off spotlights at numerous prominent buildings and monuments. In addition, the City of Bonn has contacted the Bonn ministries to request that the lighting be switched off for Earth Hour.
