“Over 80% of people who took part in Earth Hour last year felt inspired to do more to protect our planet. This year, there is no reason why we cannot make a promise to live more sustainably. Our late founding father Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s vision long preceded the present-day global conservationists’ movement; he loved nature and wildlife and understood the importance of preserving every source we have from nature by putting it to productive use. Sheikh Zayed lived and died with the values of conservation close to his heart, and it is our duty to uphold his legacy every day and not just during Earth Hour”
