Sheraton Abuja Hotel will go dark for one hour on March 30th to shine a light on climate action in support of Earth Hour 2019. The hotel will join millions around the world in turning off its lights at 8:30 p.m. local time to illuminate a powerful message about environmental awareness and action. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) created the annual global environmental awareness event 12 years ago to emphasize the threat of climate change.

Sheraton Abuja Hotel will participate by having a fun gathering of associates and guests with photo sessions and music during the lights out. We will turn off non-essential interior lighting; use recharchable lamps in appropriate public areas such as the ‘hotels’ Pool Bar and Restaurants. The hotel teams will also use in-room guests Letters to inform patrons about the Earth Hour observances.“
