Media Advisory: WWF Calls on Halifax to Take a #momentofdarkness

HALIFAX, NS--(Marketwired - March 19, 2014) - Earth Hour is fast approaching! On Saturday, March 29 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., WWF-Canada is calling on Canadians to switch off the lights and enjoy a #momentofdarkness -- a time to reflect on how we can come together and work towards a better future where climate change is no longer a threat.

In advance of Earth Hour, David Miller, President and CEO of WWF-Canada (World Wildlife Fund), will be in Halifax to lead a discussion on what this future will look like and how we get there.

Panel discussion where diverse experts will discuss a future where climate change is no longer a threat. What does that world look like? How is it different than the world we live in today? What is the one thing that we should do now to start getting from here to there?
