At 8:30 p.m. Saturday, March 27, the city of Eden Prairie is joining hundreds of millions of people around the globe to participate in Earth Hour, the world’s largest public action to stand in solidarity for the protection of the planet.
The grassroots Earth Hour organization is debuting a short video highlighting the planet Earth on March 27 here. It also provides digital assets to share via social media here.
As a symbol of Eden Prairie’s commitment to the environment, the clocks on Eden Prairie’s iconic water tower will go dark for Earth Hour 2021. The City’s participation in this global event is an acknowledgment of its continued focus on actions that benefit the community and our environment.
By setting an example, the City of Eden Prairie also encourages others in the community to turn off non-essential lights in their homes and businesses from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., and to make a commitment to go beyond the hour with positive action for the environment year-round.
