Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Support a global movement to raise awareness about saving energy by using natural daylight at work, and turn off your lights Friday, June 21 for one hour from noon to 1 p.m.
Daylight Hour is a project of Building Energy Exchange, a non-profit organization that supports the building industry through energy and lighting efficiency education and research. Its mission is to raise awareness about how simple actions – done in mass – can have a big environmental impact.
This year, the city of Kansas City, MO is a partner in Daylight Hour, along with the city offices of New York, NY; Cambridge, MA: Delray Beach, FL; Santa Rosa, CA; and Yonkers, NY. At the KCMO City Hall, members of the KCMO Green Team will visit every floor of City Hall to encourage employees to use natural light in their offices and conference room. The city team invites others to snap a photo and post it on social media with the hashtag #lightsoutkc and check out their Daylight Hour video featuring the KCMO Planning Department staff.
The Greenability office functions most days without turning on the lights and will be keeping the lights off on June 21. Let us know if your office is participating by commenting here or through social media. Sign up at Daylight Hour.
