Earth Hour in Cambodia is going to be a lights out event for the future of renewable energy!
Earth Hour 2016 in Cambodia is focusing on a push towards renewable energy for the future growth of the country and to protect the natural resources in the region. Fifty million people have no access to reliable electricity in Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos. That’s millions of children studying by candlelight, families cooking on unhealthy stoves and powering their houses with polluting charcoal, and the demand is rising! We believe the answer is a diverse mix of renewables and energy efficiency to survive the climate crisis. Earth Hour 2016 in Cambodia will see a lights out event at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, with performances from Miss Meas Soksophea and traditional dancers, as well as games and quizzes on the night and a photo competition with some GREAT prizes. The event will also play host to some of the region’s solar power companies, showing the benefits of renewable energy and it’s place in the future of Cambodia!
