Earth Hour Macedonia

For six years in a row, Earth Hour has become a traditional celebration in Macedonia (FYROM). Skopje, Ohrid, Bitola are just some of the cities taking turns to switch off their lights.

Our aim is to make the people of Macedonia (FYROM) use their power and change climate change! This year, Earth Hour Macedonia is celebrating people's power and influence on climate change. Over 100 locations will go dark "on the hour" on 28 March, sending a clear message that we need actions on climate change! Earth Hour Macedonia's superheroes are volunteers of the Red Cross. Thousands of them are creating local events, spreading the message, taking pictures and turning off their lights on the night.

 

Climate change is already affecting our daily lives. That is why apart from turning off the lights, this year we are conducting a campaign to reduce air pollution in Macedonia (FYROM)'s capital, Skopje. This campaign will culminate in a spectacular flash mob. Hundreds of young people will dance on the streets of Skopje to Bastille's song Pompeii, well known as the Earth Hour music theme for 2015. With support from the Ministry of Environment, organisations, businesses, media, celebrities, and the citizens of Macedonia (FYROM), we are announcing the biggest Earth Hour ever!

 

 

"Macedonia is proud to be part of the biggest voluntary action on the planet, and we are sure that Earth Hour 2015 will be the biggest, most successful Earth Hour ever!" - says George Selkov, head of the Earth Hour movement in Macedonia (FYROM). Here are some more words for you from the team:
