Mayo County Council is joining the global movement to protect our planet and you can get involved too!

On Saturday March 30th from 8:30 – 9.30pm millions of people around the planet will take part in WWF’s Earth Hour. By turning off non-essential lights for one hour, people can demonstrate their care and concern for the environment in a collective worldwide effort. Mayo County Council will be powering down and we would like you to join us. You can learn more about Earth Hour here or by watching these videos:

If you or a community group or business you are involved with are planning on taking part in Earth Hour we would love to hear from you. Contact Mayo County Council Climate Action Officer Laura Dixon at to register your event or for more information.

Mayo County Council will be using Earth Hour as their launch pad for Climate Action Month. During the month of April Mayo County Council will focus on a climate action theme every week including biodiversity to correspond with Tree Week ( 31st March – 7th April), Plastic and waste, energy and transport. Climate Action month will come to a close on Mayo day with a section dedicated to Climate Action at the Mayo day celebrations on May 4th in Turlough House.
