Today is Earth Hour! The event taking action against climate change, which started in a single city - Sydney, Australia - in 2007, has grown into a global symbol of hope and movement for change.
Earth Hour 2010 was the world’s largest ever voluntary action with people from all over the world. Participants from 128 countries across every continent came together to celebrate an unambiguous commitment to the planet.
Earth Hour’s iconic global ‘lights out’ event has seen some of the world’s most recognized landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, Golden Gate Bridge, Table Mountain and Sydney Opera House switch off their lights.
Be sure that the lights will be out in our studio tonight, 26 March at 8.30pm (local time) because eco-minded as we are, we want to share the positive action and be a part of the global celebration of the one thing that unites us all – the planet. You too, turn your lights out, and think of how you can prolong this action beyond the hour.
Together our actions add up.
