Earth Hour is an initiative of WWF (World Wildlife Fund), which began in 2007 in Australia. Now a global phenomenon, this annual event encourages households and businesses to turn off their lights for one hour on the last Saturday of March.
With 162 countries involved, the aim of this initiative is to raise awareness of climate change.
First and foremost, Earth Hour is a symbolic gesture that inspires action and encourages people to realize that, no matter where on the planet, individual actions have a big impact when they are shared and multiplied. It’s a reminder that we have the power to curb global warming; after all, we’re the generation that can do something about it.
Earth Hour will take place Saturday, March 28 at 8:30pm. Take the opportunity to turn off all your lights and organize a candlelight dinner! Not only will you create a warm and cozy atmosphere, you will have done something concrete to show your support for the environment.
