What Is Earth Hour 2017? How You Can Get Involved

“At 8:30 p.m. your local time on Saturday, March 25, through Facebook Live or a live channel of your choice, turn up the tunes using #EarthHourLive. In past years monuments like the Trevi Fountain in Italy, Tower Bridge in London and The Sydney Opera House in Australia have gone dark for the event.

Urging her constituents to join in, Jackie Baillie said: "Earth Hour has become well established as an important way of supporting global efforts to tackle climate change".

Starting in Samoa and ending 24 hours later in The Cook Islands, people in 184 countries will send a message calling for action to protect the planet by tackling climate change, WWF said. Instead it's a chance for Britain to unite, put the spotlight on climate change action and inspire people to live more sustainably.

This year, in honor of movement's 10 anniversary, the WWF officials is recognizing some individuals who have taken Earth Hour to the next level.

Members of the South African Property Owners Association have also been challenged by the CoJ, GBCSA and WWF to switch off lights and appliances in all their buildings to show their support. The movement has grown so much since then that past year it was celebrated in 178 countries around the world.

This weekend, people across the world will turn off the lights to make a statement about protecting the earth. "Earth Hour reflects a philosophy we try to practice year-round that we all must do our part and together we can make a big difference". First Earth Hour cocktails or mocktails will be free of cost.

"Council supports the principles of Earth Hour and encourages residents of Bracebridge to participate as well".

"We want to mitigate the effects of climate change as much as we can", Eckstron said.

Mr Redmond-King said: "Transport is a big cause of greenhouse gas emissions in the United Kingdom; yet some of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel - public transport - are already suffering from the impacts of climate change". The thought of our global community making the gesture of no lights for one hour will bring connection of participation surrounding this conversation.
