Radisson Blu Resort Fiji had an intimate celebration of Earth Hour this year by inviting in-house guests, three local Nadi schools and employees to join the special programme organized by the resort. Activities to mark the occasion included a countdown to earth hour followed by a candle lit ceremony, choir singing and entertainment by the school students, fire show and traditional Fijian activities inviting guests to participate.
On Saturday, 24th March all lights were switched off at the resort for Earth Hour and guests were encouraged to turn off all unnecessary lights in their accommodation room for the hour and join the celebration and candlelit dinners hosted throughout the evening.
