PEOPLE OF THE GUIANAS JOINING THE WORLDWIDE EARTH HOUR COMMUNITY

On 28 March, ordinary people from Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana came out to raise their voice for action on Climate Change.  Across the region, whether through candle-lit marches, concerts, or seeing the Earth Hour symbol beamed on to the Ariane rocket at the Space Centre, hundreds of people enjoyed themselves whilst also seeking ways to reduce energy use an cut their carbon footprint.
