Switch off for Earth Hour Today at 8:30 pm! @earthhour #ChangeClimateChange #Connect2Earth
Earth Hour is an annual event organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature to help bring engagement to ecological issues. Show your solidarity with the planet and turn off any non-essential electronics for 1 hour tonight from 8:30 to 9:30.
You can find out where to take part in an event near you!
Every year millions of people, businesses and landmarks set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights and make noise for the Earth Hour movement. This year, we want to celebrate the diversity of life on Earth, and we want to invite your friends and family to celebrate with us!
