ESO calls on public to join Earth Hour
MUSCAT: The Environment Society of Oman (ESO) invites the general public to join millions around the world for Earth Hour 2017. This year’s event will be held at Al Bandar Hotel in partnership with the Shangri-la Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa from 6-10pm.
Featuring a number of highly interactive educational games and live music, the Society will be welcoming everyone to join them in observing the hour by attending the event or, if you are at home, to turn off your lights on Saturday between 8.30-9.30pm.
ESO is organising Earth Hour in Oman for the seventh time and will be supported by the Royal Opera House Muscat and the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque once more.
Individuals and companies wishing to join this noble cause may take a pledge by visiting www.omanearthhour.org, where more information can be found on energy saving and celebrating Earth Hour.
The Environment Society of Oman was founded in March 2004 by Omanis representing different regions and many different professional backgrounds.
The Society is the first of its kind in Oman and works by promoting conservation and environmental awareness in all sectors of society. In February 2009 ESO was accepted as a member of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and was chosen to represent environmental organizations from West Asia at UNEP.
