Head4Arts will be holding free family friendly events to celebrate Earth Hour on Saturday 28th March 2020 at four fantastic locations throughout the eastern Heads of the Valleys area.  Each event will offer a creative exploration of climate change using storytelling, lanterns and butterfly-themed crafts.

These free events which are suitable for all ages will be taking place at Parc Bryn Bach, Tredegar - Cyfarthfa Park, Merthyr Tydfil - Blaenavon World Heritage Centre and Library and Penallta Park.

Earth Hour is a WWF global campaign during which millions of people turn off their lights to raise awareness of climate change.  Earth Hour 2020 will take place between 8.30-9.30pm on 28th March 2020.

Head4Arts activities taking place throughout the day are designed to connect families with Earth Hour and encourage them to switch their lights off for one hour later in the evening to show their shared concern for the planet.  Participants also be invited to pledge one thing they can change to slow down climate change.

The day’s activities will culminate in a grand finale taking place at Penallta Park.  This evening event will be a unique, time-travelling, interactive experience with spectacular lanterns featuring animals from around the world.

The theme for this year’s events is It’s About Time, highlighting how climate change is threatening the health of our planet and the wildlife (and humans) that depend on it.  Butterflies have been chosen as the symbol for the events to represent the decline of biodiversity on a local and global scale.  Since 1976, butterflies and moths are among the species that have suffered greatest falls in abundance, with a 52% decline in the average species’ abundance of butterflies being reported in Wales.

This is the fifth year that Head4Arts has organised events for Earth Hour, Creative Director, Kate Strudwick says “We are living in a changing world and we hope that our events for Earth Hour 2020 will give families an opportunity to explore climate change in a creative way, and inspire them to embrace the lifestyle changes we will all have to make in future.  Ultimately, addressing climate change and protecting the environment is everyone’s responsibility.”
