The focus on this year’s beyond the hour activities is waste management. French Polynesia's main event of Earth Hour 2014 is an acoustic concert in the main stadium in Tahiti. The seats of the concert will be paid with recyclable waste!
Instead of tickets, people have to bring recyclable waste to get access to the acoustic concert at Stade Pater, the main stadium in Tahiti, in the city of Pirae. Upon entering, the audience will go through the red carpet to be photographed sorting the recyclable waste 'tickets'. The photos will then be shared on social networks to spread the message.
This year, Earth Hour Tahiti has more support from the country's authorities, private companies and associations for environmental protection. Additionally, support from the local press will help the country fulfill private or public and individual or collective initiatives in favor of sustainable development.
