This year marks the ninth annual Earth Hour which was first initiated in Sydney, Australia in an effort to create awareness and stand up against climate change. This is an hour which brings the global community together towards a common goal of protecting our planet. It has since grown into the world’s largest mass participation event in history.
This year Earth Hour will take place at 8:30 p.m. local time on Saturday March 28th, 2015.
Earth hour is not simply just turning off one’s lights for an hour, though this is a symbolic act which inspires and unites people to a common goal, it is also meant to stimulate action beyond this initial hour and create an interconnected global community whose goal is to build a sustainable future for the planet.
