Earth Hour 2012 - WWF

An initiative from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is giving musicians an opportunity to showcase their writing talents for a great cause.

WWF Canada is calling on Vancouverites to join them in making history by helping to write Canada’s first crowd-sourced song – the Team Earth Hour Anthem. Composer Andrew Huang, who you might know as the creative force behind the online musical comedy project Songs To Wear Pants To, will select and assemble lyrics from entries submitted on WWF’s Facebook page with the help of the public.

Everyone who submits a lyric will be entered to win an X Series Electric Scooter from EMMO.

If you’re a musician, this is a great opportunity to possibly get publicity simply by writing lyrics and showing your love for the environment.

I like everything that has to do with environmental conservation and I like music, so I support this initiative. Now in its fifth year, WWF’s Earth Hour has a simple concept: for one hour, participants turn their lights out to take a stand against climate change.

Earth Hour demonstrates that small changes to our daily activities — such as turning off lights you don’t need to conserve energy — can collectively make a big impact. This initiative unites individuals, businesses and communities around the globe in a powerful call to action of hope for a better, healthier planet.

From 8:30PM – 9:30 PM on Saturday, March 31st (local time), be sure to switch off your lights to join the Earth Hour movement.
