Earth Hour: Switch Off Your Lights On March 27th For One Hour, Save Earth!

Posted on: March 14, 2010


On Earth Hour millions of people around the world come together to call for action on climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour. Earth Hour 2010 will take place on 27th March 2010. 

Earth Hour is a WWF initiative which sends across an inspiring message of hope and action for Climate Change. At 8.30pm on 27th March 2010, cities, towns and municipalities across the world will turn off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour – sending a powerful global message that it’s possible to take action on global warming.

Earth Hour is a global call to action to every individual, every business and every community. A call to stand up, to show leadership and be responsible for our future.
In what we hope will be the world’s largest mass participation event, Earth Hour 2010 will be the culmination of over one billion people around the globe, in more than 6000 cities, towns turning off lights for one hour on one night. Iconic buildings and landmarks across Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and The Americas will go dark.

In India, we hope to make Earth Hour 2010 even bigger and better than last year. Besides Delhi & Mumbai , this year we are taking Earth Hour to Pune, Ahmedabad,  Hyderabad, Bangaluru, Chennai and  Kolkata, apart from several other cities where people will be encouraged to participate and turn-off the lights in their homes, offices and buildings  from 8:30pm-9:30pm on Saturday, 27 March 2010. Our participation will go a long way in showing to the world that India is united on its stand against global warming and is demanding immediate action.
