To further demonstrate its commitment to a clean, green earth, Ramada Ajman this week joined the global Earth Hour action and turned off the lights. Led by Cluster General Manager Iftikhar Hamdani, the hotel switched off all their facade signage and all non-essential electrical equipment. Guests were also invited to take part by turning off lights in their rooms
To celebrate the occasion Ramada Ajman organised a live candle light acoustic performance from a collection of their talented staff members in the hotel’s lobby. The evening also provide guests with a special candle-lit dinner package at the Orchid Restaurant.
Earth Hour was launched in Sydney, Australia in 2007, with 2.2 million people and 2,100 businesses participating in the ‘lights off’ event. Just one year later, Earth Hour became a global phenomenon with over 35 countries participating, and an estimated 50-100 million people.
In recent years, Earth Hour has been celebrated in over 172 countries and over 7000 cities and towns worldwide. The symbolic hour has grown into the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, with beyond the hour projects and initiatives happening throughout the year.
