Switch Off This Earth Hour
People from more than 7000 cities across the globe are set to take a stand and raise their voice against biodiversity loss by celebrating Earth Hour on Saturday, 24 March, 2018. In the last ten years, Earth Hour has become the largest voluntary grassroot environmental campaign in the world. As the planet continues to witness climate records being broken and the loss of biodiversity at an alarming rate, Earth Hour is mobilizing individuals, communities and organizations globally to do their part to help protect the planet we call home.
In the past decade, as global efforts to control climate change gained momentum, Earth Hour has helped bridge the gap between the grassroots and governments, taking conversations around conservation from conference rooms to living rooms in over 172 countries.
This year too, the drill is simple – switch off all non-essential lights from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm on 24th March to be a part of Earth Hour and the Give Up to Give Back Initiative.
One hour of switching off and giving up electricity consumption will give you and the planet the time to reflect, revive and rejuvenate.
