Mark your calendars for Earth Hour 2012!

Now in it’s sixth year, The World Wildlife Fund (WWF)’s Earth Hour is once again inspiring people all over the world to switch off their lights for one hour on March 31st, at 8:30pm local time as part of a global vote for the environment. On this date, hundreds of millions of people around the globe will turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as part of a campaign whose mission is to awareness about the environmental challenges we all face, provoke discussion about these challenges, and get individuals and governments to commit to long-term solutions that will benefit the planet.

In 2007, Sydney, Australia was the first city to switch off its lights. In 2008, Earth Hour went global and 50 million people around the world took part. In 2011, 1.8 billion people from over 5,000 cities and towns in 135 countries and territories across every continent participated!

If you’d like to participate, you can sign up as an individual or organize an event. For more information and resources

Happy Earth Hour!
