WWF Earth Hour 2009 Commercial
This is a commercial flighting in Africa about a WWF (World Wide Fund/World Wildlife Foundation) campaign. It is called Earth Hour 2009. High profile people from around the world are committing themselves to shutting off their lights for 1 hour on Saturday March 28th from 20h30-21h30, in hopes of 1 billion people world-wide doing the same thing. The objective is not to necessarily save energy for that particular time, but it is focused on raising awareness for Global Climate Change. Specifically , it is directed towards the world leaders who will be meeting in Copenhagen for the United Nations Climate Change Conference taking place on December 7th-18th.
I signed a billboard along with Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu, Bryan Urbana (SA Rugby Captain), The Parlotones (Popular SA Rock Band), and others from around the country. It will be presented during to the world leaders at the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.
I will be saving the world on March 28th, what will you be doing?
