Earth Hour at Park Inn by Radisson
We’re delighted to say that we are continuing to join the thousands of households and businesses across the globe celebrating Earth Hour. Each year, many hotels turn off their non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness of the need to take action on climate change.
The Park Inn by Radisson properties used Earth Hour – an environmental initiative supported by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) – as an opportunity to engage guests, employees and business partners in their pursuit for energy savings by organizing fun activities. Several hotels organize candle light dinners, featuring special Earth Hour cocktails and Earth Hour menus.
All eleven Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson hotels in the United Arab Emirates participated in an event organised by the Dubai Government. The LED lighting of their Think Planet stand was powered exclusively by a bicycle. The team invited by-passers to cycle and challenged them to guess the amount of kilometers needed to keep the stand lit throughout the event.
In Turkey, the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Cesme, had the luminous idea to organize a Flash Mob with employees wearing glowing accessories. Whilst the Radisson Blu Arlandia in Stockholm/Sweden organised an Instagram competition where the best photo taken in the bar during Earth Hour and posted on Instagram with #earthhour #bluarlandia won an overnight stay in one of their airport hotels.
