How to Celebrate Earth Hour in Monaco

Landmarks go dark for 'Earth Hour'

"That's why we are encouraging British Columbians to turn off unnecessary lights and electronics from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday in support of Earth Hour".

Earth Hour is a movement organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (called World Wildlife Fund in Canada).

Last year, Earth hour broke the world record with 3,100 monuments going dark in 187 countries and territories between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.

PRINCE GEORGE- Tomorrow, people around the world will turn off their lights for one hour to show their support for The World Wildlife Fund.

In Australia, where Earth Hour was first held, the WWF will raise awareness on the four so-called "hero species" - green turtles, koalas, rock wallabies, and penguins - while the Sydney Opera House and Harbor Bridge will join the blackout.

"Earth Hour is about turning off our lights together for one hour, symbolically, to show that we care about the planet", Devos later said in an email.

But a parliament majority can't be secured unless enough votes are gathered from the opposition ranks. She said she contacted the opposition leader and called on all lawmakers to end such practices.

Annual Earth Hour is celebrated on March 24 every year.

It's easy to think that you can't make a difference, but according to WWF Thailand, Bangkok's electricity usage reduced by 73.34 megawatts during the hour - saving 41.6 tonnes of carbon monoxide from being produced.

EARTH Hour is a worldwide movement led by WWF, taking up the fight against climate change. In the United Kingdom alone, 9 million people took part.

"This Earth Hour, we want to shine a light on the importance of biodiversity and nature".

Now in its eleventh year, Earth Hour has gone beyond the hour and achieved massive environmental impacts around the world by harnessing the power of the crowd. Rather, it's a chance to put the spotlight on the issues facing the planet, and to inspire millions across the world to live more sustainably.

On Thursday, March 22, Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu urged Filipinos to go beyond switching lights off for an hour and to make it a habit to use less energy and adopt other eco-friendly measures to mitigate the effects of climate change.
