Earth Hour 2018 Dubai

Dubai joined in with Earth Hour again. This year we watched from our friends roof top. Sadly not many residents turned their lights off, but the government switched off street lights, public buildings and malls and hotels joined in also.

Burj Al Arab and Jumeriah Beach Hotel with Dubai Marina in the background.



Business Bay and the Burj Khalifa. Some lights had to remain on for safety reasons, aeroplanes, helicopters and for the 24/7 construction works.

  4. It is great to see the city take part in Earth Hour but I do rather feel it would be better if they cut back on a percentage of the power they use every day rather than cutting it out on just one day. I have no idea where Dubai stands on the list of least green cities but with all its development I would be interested to find out.

    Thank you for linking in to #GoingGreen and so sorry it took me so long to get around to reading. The next linky opens tomorrow (May 7th) so I hope you will join in again :)

    1. I'm not sure Dubai have the hang of what #goinggreen really means. I see lots of open spaces, water, parks etc, but recycling and use of electricity is not really being addressed.
