Expo 2020 Dubai celebrates Earth Hour

DUBAI, 24th March, 2018 (WAM) -- As well as switching lights off for Earth Hour 2018, Expo 2020 Dubai employees came together to assemble 210 solar-powered lights from Beacon of Hope UAE.

Founded by Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan in 2016, Beacon of Hope UAE has distributed more than 6,800 easy-to-assemble reading lights to children in impoverished areas around the world.

The lights assembled by the Expo 2020 team will allow children to keep reading even when no other electricity is available, because light and opportunity go hand in hand.
