Ayala Center Cebu Joins Earth Hour 2014
What began in Sydney, Australia, in 2007 showing everyone that they can change the world they live in through a 60-minute switch-off event now became an annual worldwide movement uniting people to protect the planet via Earth Hour. Cebu’s premiere lifestyle destination for dining, shopping and entertainment will be joining the world-initiative Earth Hour this Saturday, March 29 with a series of fun events and more.
Starting at 1pm on March 29 at Ayala Activity Center, the Kids For The Planet activities will kick off with cosplayers walking around the mall promoting environmental awareness. Kids may also write dedications and show their support for a sustainable planet in a graffiti style and win gift packs and prizes.
Don’t miss the Earth Hour countdown starting at 7:30pm at the Terraces as there is plenty to cheer about with fun and live performances such as the famous University of Cebu Lighted Glass Dancers and University of Cebu Chorale. While we switch off at 830pm, watch power-free performances such as that from Poi Galore, The Festival of Lights by Dagitab Festival of Naga City and interpretative dance shows. Witness Barbie Alvez’s fashion show showing off earth-friendly and energy saving fabrics through her Body Bioluminiscene collection. 22 Tango Record’ Folk City featuring local bands such as Wonggoys, Ella Melendez, Womb, Mary Anchit and Mother Folker (Cattski) will then be performing live after the switch off.
Earth Hour is a 60-minute lights-out around the world involving over 5 million people in more than 130 countries. The major landmark illuminations will be switched off in an effort to raise awareness about conservation of energy and sustainable living. The lights-out event itself aims to empower people to make a difference on and beyond one hour to reach out to the hundreds of millions of people within the community and the global Earth Hour communities. Last year, Earth Hour broke all records to become the largest movement for the planet in human history, spanning over 7,000 cities, 154 countries with a digital reach of 345 million.
