Earth Hour is an international movement for the planet coordinated by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The occurrence is held worldwide yearly persuading individuals, societies, families and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on the last Saturday in March, as a sign for their pledge to the planet.
Earth Hour was legendary originated as a lights-off affair in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has multiplied to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide.
Earth Hour holds a substantial mainstream community on a broad range of environmental concerns. The one-hour event continues to remain the main driver of the now larger movement.
Change Climate Change, the theme for Earth Hour this year. Climate change is not just the matter of the hour, it’s the matter of our generation. Earth Hour is the world’s most continuing people’s movement concentrated on climate. The lights may go out for only one hour, but the actions of millions right through the year will encourage and motivate the resolutions needed to transform or avoid climate change.
The world’s most renowned landmarks will once again go dark during Earth Hour, and supporters will utilize the hour to promote climate-change solutions. It is not a blackout, but an intended action by its participants to prove their pledge to an act of change that helps the earth.
