Harbour Grand Kowloon Participates in Earth Hour 2012 to Support Action for Climate Change

(Hong Kong, March 27, 2012) – To show our continued support and commitment to protecting the environment and support for action on climate change, Harbour Grand Kowloon will participate in Earth Hour 2012, a global Worldwide Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) climate change initiative.

Earth Hour will take place on Saturday night, March 31, at 8:30.  To show our support, our resident band at Waterfront Bar & Terrace will perform an unplugged session and hotel guests will be asked for their voluntary participation to switch off the lights in their rooms. In addition, the hotel will turn off their lights in most back-of-the-house areas and dim the lights in public areas, restaurants and hotel exteriors.

The day before (March 30), the hotel’s staff will also support the initiative by turning off all back of the house computers from 1 – 2 pm.

About Earth Hour

In 2007 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change in Sydney, Australia.  Their stand ignited a global response in kind with 135 countries and over 5,200 cities globally participating in Earth Hour in 2011.  With global landmarks such as Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and Rome’s Colosseum all standing in darkness, Earth Hour has become an event for the planet by the people.
