The City of Columbia's Climate Protection Action Campaign, better known as CPAC, empowers all Columbians to improve the environment through water conservation, energy conservation, air quality and recycling/waste reduction. CPAC was formed by Columbia City Council in 2006 after signing the US Conference of Mayors Climate Action Plan. CPAC now serves as City's clearinghouse for environmental action, information and activities.
Join us on Saturday, March 28 from 8:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. in turning out the lights and celebrating Earth Hour. Earth Hour aims to encourage an interconnected global community to share the opportunities and challenges of creating a sustainable world. Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement uniting people to protect the planet, and is organized by WWF. Engaging a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage more than 7,000 cities and towns worldwide, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement.
