June 22 | 12pm-1pm
Every summer on the longest day of the year the City of Boca Raton participates in Daylight Hour, a global event to encourage the use of daylight in our offices spaces. For one hour at noon, turn off electric lights and live by daylight. Daylight hour helps to raise awareness of the energy used for lighting and the benefit of using daylight when possible. Daylight hour is a great time to reflect on the sun as the main source of energy for our planet, all the ways we can use that energy sustainably, and the link between sustainability and wellness.
