The City of Cleveland will join millions around the globe to observe Earth Hour on March 24, 2018 by turning off all non-essential lights at Cleveland City Hall.
“The health of our environment directly affects the health of our people,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “That’s why every opportunity to make Cleveland greener, like Earth Hour, is important.”
The lights will be off from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in an effort to show support for protecting our planet and stopping climate change. Mayor Jackson and the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability – leading the charge in the City of Cleveland to fight climate change – have long been committed to promoting efforts such as Earth Hour to Clevelanders.
In 2009, Mayor Jackson created Sustainable Cleveland 2019 – a 10-year initiative focused on engaging everyone to work together to design and develop a thriving and resilient Cleveland that leverages its wealth of assets to build economic, social and environmental well-being for all.
