EARTH HOUR 2010 – SATURDAY MARCH 27 AT 8:30 P.M.
Please join people around the world on Saturday, March 27, 2010 by turning off your lights for one hour at 8:30 p.m. as part of Earth Hour.
Organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Earth Hour began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million homes and businesses turned their lights off for one hour to make their stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the, Sydney Harbor Bridge, The CN Tower in Toronto, The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Coliseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.
In March 2009, the City of Calabasas and hundreds of millions of people around the globe took part in the third Earth Hour. Over 4000 cities in 88 countries officially switched off to pledge their support for the planet, making Earth Hour 2009 the world’s largest global climate change initiative.
