On March 27 at 8:30 p.m. local time, 4000 cities in 125 countries voluntarily dimmed the lights demonstrating the ultimate show of global unity in the fight against climate change. Individuals, businesses, and governments came together to support WWF’s fourth year of encouraging an hour of lights-out and sending a powerful message that shined bright to everyone throughout the world.
“The largest ever number of countries, people, and landmarks joined forces for Earth Hour this year. It was a visible demonstration of the enormous level of support there is around the world, for a united effort to tackle climate change,” said David Nussbaum, CEO of WWF-UK.
Hopefully someday the people of the world can translate the efforts of Earth Hour into year round solidarity.
