On Saturday, 28 March 8:30 p.m. local time, individuals, businesses, cities and landmarks around the world will switch off their lights for one hour to focus attention on climate change. As the lights go out, Earth Hour supporters will also be contributing real climate solutions to combat the globe’s biggest environmental challenge.
This year, Earth Hour is set to be a record-breaking celebration of our planet with an unprecedented 172 countries and territories having confirmed their participation, including nations on the climate frontlines like the Philippines, Maldives and Madagascar and key climate actors such as Brazil, the United States and China.
Saving energy makes good sense and showing your solidarity with others who would like to transition to a more sustainable, energy-conscious society are two great reasons to participate in this worldwide event.
Tell your friends about Earth Hour! The more people that participate in Earth Hour, the more energy that is saved, along with raising more awareness.
