Earth Hour at the SLC

This Earth Hour, shine a light on climate action. Switch off your light and switch on your social power at earthhour.orgRyerson University and the SLC will be joining millions around the world to shine a light on climate action by participating in Earth Hour. We will celebrate our commitment to our planet by switching off lights from 8:30 – 9:30pm on Saturday, March 19, 2016.

We will be turning off all non-essential lighting in and around the SLC for one hour. This includes:


  • Lights on Floors 3 and 4
  • Exterior lights
  • Lights installed on the glass windows on Floors 1 and 2
  • Lights on Floors 5 to 8 depending on occupancy

All floors and areas will be monitored and adjusted accordingly. Lights will not be turned off if there are any perceived risks.

In 2015, the SLC’s participation was a great success and we invite you to switch off lights and switch on your social power with us again this year.
