Today, Saturday 29th March is Earth Hour! 8:30-9:30 PM local hour!
Lights in homes, buildings and famous landmarks will be turned off for an hour on Saturday to mark WWF’s annual event!
Earth Hour is in it eight year and millions of people around the world are expected to participate in the global event. It all started in Australia in 2007 and has been marked ever since. It is today one of the worlds biggest environmental events. Last year more than 154 countries and 7000 cities participated.
A big part of Earth Hour is about empowerment – the idea that you as an individual can do something!
Among the world’s famous landmarks that will dim their lights are the Empire State building in New York, the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Kremlin and Red Square in Moscow, the Bosphorus Bridge in Turkey and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. In the UK, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham palace, Tower Bridge and the London Eye will all dim their lights.
