Switch off for Earth Hour tonight at 8:30 pm!! @earthhour #ChangeClimateChange #Connect2Earth

Set your timer to switch it off. Tonight March 30, at 8:30pm (your local time) Earth Hour will be rolling across the globe. You can take part by shutting off your lights and appreciating the Earth for 60+ minutes.

Via Earth Hour:

Starting as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, inspiring millions of people to take action for our planet and nature.

What better way to celebrate than with the electrifying energy of Earth Hour as it sweeps across the planet? Remember to switch off in solidarity with global efforts to secure nature and our home: 30 March, 8:30pm your time. It’s time to #Connect2Earth.

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!

You don’t have to sit in the dark by yourself though! You can join up with one of these Earth Hour events near you!

AccuWeather put together a list of monuments that went dark last year for Earth Hour. Some of the big hitters include the Empire State Building and the Pyramids of Egypt. Everyone is doing it!
