Earth Hour 2018

Earth Hour will be celebrated on March 24 from 8:30pm to 9:30pm (your local time). Earth Hour is an annual event where people, businesses, and cities around the globe are urged to turn off as many lights and electrical gadgets as they can for one hour. While this saves electricity, the bigger goal is to create awareness in people about simple changes they can make in their lifestyles to help our planet. Earth Hour began in Sydney, Australia, in 2007. Last year, hundreds of millions of people in 187 countries and territories turned off their lights for an hour. Over 12,000 of the world’s landmarks and monuments, such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge (Australia), the Burj Khalifa (UAE), and the Eiffel Tower (France), also participated by going dark. Here is a video about Earth Hour.
