Al Ain, UAE (March 26, 2018) – Danat Al Ain Resort, the award-winning 5-star hotel resort in the Garden City of Al Ain, joined the entire nation and the more than 7,000 communities in 187 countries and territories around the world who observed Earth Hour, a landmark movement that addresses global warming and climate change.
A brief ceremony was organised at the hotel garden where team members and guests gathered to witness the switching off of lights signaling the start of the Earth Hour movement.
At exactly 8:30pm on March 24, Danat Al Ain Resort switched off unnecessary lights and appliances throughout the hotel for 60 minutes while several hotel guests also dimmed or turned off the lights inside their room. Other guests dined in candle light as a show of support.
Ahmed Margoushy, General Manager, Danat Al Ain Resort said: “Movements like Earth Hour that create awareness about climate change should go beyond just switching off the lights. It should be a year-long campaign and a joint effort to protect our planet. We, at Danat Al Ain Resort are proud that we have energy saving programs carried out within the hotel and in our hotel accommodation that will encourage hotel team and guests to contribute to energy conservation.”
Millions of people around the world switched off their lights for Earth Hour on March 24, a movement initiated by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in 2007. The world’s largest grassroots movement advocates for eco-consciousness. This year’s theme was “Connect 2 Earth”, which highlighted the importance of biodiversity that is declining around the world. The three-year campaign will emphasize the connection between climate change, biodiversity and people and will encourage everyone to take action to stop the loss of biodiversity.
