Darkness for a brighter future
On Saturday March 29th at 8.30 PM, millions of people across the world are turning to darkness for a brighter future. They will be switching off their lights for an hour to show their commitment towards the planet and towards energy consumption.
The concept was started in 2007 with Sydney Australia being the first city to observe the Earth Hour. Over 2.2 million Sydnersiders set the ball rolling for the world to show their commitment towards energy consumption. The next year saw participation from over 371 cities from over 35 countries, quickly becoming the world's largest grassroot movement.
Last year the Earth Hour saw phenomenal increase in support as the world rallied together for one hour in an inspiring display of what people can accomplish when they put their hearts in the right place. India's gateway of India was one of the participating landmarks.
This year the change is already underway. In Uganda over 500000 trees will be planted to create the world's first Earth Hour Forest in a fight against the 6000 hectares of deforestation.
We call on people like you to come join hands with us and support this cause. This year with the Earth Hour Blue, you could also support one of their many inspiring projects.
It’s one turn-off you should embrace and be proud of.
Let’s indulge in darkness for a brighter future
