Earth Hour 2015: Spread the word!

On Saturday, March 28 at 8:30 PM local time the lights will go dark in communities around the world as we celebrate Earth Hour. The World Wildlife Fund sponsors this annual event which has been taking place since 2007 and has supported a wide range of environmental issues. The first Earth Hour took place in Sydney, Australia as a symbolic stand against climate change and has grown into the largest mass participation event in history. Last year hundreds of millions of people in over 7,000 cities in 162 countries and territories participated with many countries taking actions beyond the hour.

Earth Hour: Much more than switching off lights

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.
