If you’ve never heard of it, Earth Hour is an awareness campaign with the mission of “Uniting people to protect the planet”.
It started in 2007 when the first ever Earth Hour took place in Sydney, Australia as part of an WWF (World Wildlife Foundation) initiative, which asked individuals, politicians and businesses to turn their lights out for one hour to take a stand against climate change.
In successive years, it has become an annual global event with people from all races and countries joining in by turning their lights off for longer than the hour.
This year, Earth Hour 2014 will be held on Saturday 29 March between 8.30PM and 9.30PM local time.
Why not join in and chose how to spend the hour …
- A candlelit dinner with your family
- A picnic in the dark
- Go outside and stargaze
- Have a hot chocolate by candlelight
If you enjoy the Earth Hour, make an appointment for Earth Hour 2015, which will take place on Saturday, 28 of March at 8:30PM to 9:30PM.
