Lincoln Envirotown Trust we run our Earth Hour Events to encourage Environmental awareness. Earth Hour this year is to be celebrated on the 25th of March and we would encourage everyone to switch off their lights on this night to participate in the symbolic resource saving that we all need to be aware of.
Kim Hill Hot Topic – Water – a global issue affecting New Zealand
The first Earth Hour Event will be the Kim Hill “Hot Topic”. This year the well known Radio personality will be conducting her normal vigorous discussion with panellists and audience on the topic: “Water – a global issue affecting New Zealand”.
Thursday 23 March 6.30
All are invited to attend and are guaranteed an interesting and stimulating evening. The event is held in the Stewart Building of Lincoln University.
Doors open at 6.30pm and entry is by $5.00 koha which includes refreshments. There is a cash bar but you may also visit the mobile brewery in the Stewart Foyer and enjoy free samples of a new beer brewed by The Laboratory in Lincoln.

Earth Hour Candle Lit Dance
On the evening of Earth Hour itself we will host our traditional Earth Hour Candle Lit Dance. This will be held at Lincoln High School starting at 7.30 pm on March 25th. It is always a true community event with people of all ages dancing to the instruction of the “caller”. The Southern Celtic Fiddle Orchestra, who proved so popular last year will again be providing the music. Entry at the door is $15 but early registration at earthhourdance.eventbrite.co.nz will secure discounted tickets. Children under 14 are free with adult caregiver. So switch off your lights at home and bring the whole family to enjoy the fun. (BYO and bring a plate to share).
2017 Earth Hour Video Competition
While people are encouraged to switch off their lights for Earth Hour we are encouraging them to switch on their cameras as we launch the 2017 Earth Hour Video Competition. Posters and publicity about this will soon be made public and sent to schools. Over the years we have seen growing numbers of entrants and we hope this continues as more of us consider the environmental issues that the competition highlights.
