TDSB Earth Hour - Friday March 22nd, 2:00 - 3:00 pm
Earth Hour Plus: Beyond 60 Earth Hourís minutes
What is your school doing to build on Earth Hour's message about the need to conserve more? Inspire and challenge other schools in your Family of Schools or across the city. Write to to email@example.com and tell us about any specific actions (e.g., a regular monthly or weekly Earth Hour) and what small changes are happening.
Earth Hour is an especially good candidate for a student-run environmental campaign about energy conservation and slowing climate change. Its sharp focus allows you to undertake as little or as much awareness and action building as your school is ready for. Itís a wonderfully inclusive campaignóthe youngest child can take part. The TDSB Earth Hour poster/checklist can serve as an organizing tool for classroom or school-wide endeavours.

Teachers can jump in to lead an Earth Hour Electricity Walk supported by the lesson plan and PowerPoint Presentation. To see activities, and stories, from last year click on Earth Hour 2013 in the bottom left-hand column of the EcoSchools homepage. Additional resources are available at the global Earth Hour site and the Canadian one.
In 2011, TDSB schools and offices decreased their electricity by 29.09%. Our highest yet, topping the 27.8% 2009 result! Can we do more this year?
