11 February 2014, Georgetown: In conjunction with Earth Hour 2014, World Wide Fund for Nature-Malaysia (WWF-Malaysia) and the Penang State Government are organizing a 3.5-km night walk along Penang’s Heritage Trail on 29 March, from 8.30pm to 9.30pm.

The starting point is Jalan Padang Kota Lama, through Lebuh Light, Lebuh Farquhar, Lebuh Leith, Lebuh Chulia and Lebuh Pantai, before joining back again to Lebuh Light and ending at Jalan Padang Kota Lama. The Penang Amateur Athletic Association serves as the technical advisor of the walk.

Those interested are encouraged to register at The registration fee of RM60 per person, to be paid via an online payment gateway, will entitle each participant to an “Earth Hour 60+” t-shirt and sticker, and e-certificate of participation.

As part of the Cleaner Greener Penang initiative, Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang will plant 60 trees of four types of endangered species, namely Anisoptera scaphula, Cratoxylum cochinchinense, Firmiana malayana and Fagrea auriculata at the Queensbay Interchange if 60 commercial buildings in Penang support Earth Hour by switching off non-essential lights from 8.30pm to 9.30pm on 29 March.

Earth Hour is a global environmental initiative that began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2000 businesses switched off their lights for one hour from 8.30pm, to take a stand against climate change. It is usually celebrated on the last Saturday of March.
