This month we’re teaming up with Windhoek, Tanqueray & Strongbow and going green to celebrate two of the most exciting days in the international event calendar! International Day of Forests, 21st March & Earth Hour, 24th of March.
Date: 24 March 2018
Time: 11h00 – 20h00
Venue: 012Central, 381 Helen Joseph Street, Pretoria
In 2012, the United Nations proclaimed 21 March the International Day of Forests – a day which will celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests by encouraging people to undertake local, national and international efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees!
Earth Hour is an annual worldwide movement organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to encourage individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 pm on 24 March as a symbol of commitment to the planet. The movement started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia, in 2007, and since then, has grown to engage more than 7,000 cities and towns across 187 countries and territories!
Join us as we put our green foot forward and bring the importance of nature back to the city!
