Earth Hour Will be Marked Worldwide


As much as 13 cities around the world will turn off the lights for an hour on Saturday March 29 next year to deliver a message to all people about making some action against global warming.

Earth Hour is a campaign that urges people worldwide to express their concern for global warming. The fist city that took part in the campaign was Sydney, Australia to reduce the greenhouse emissions by five percent in 2007. The event took part at 7.30pm to 8.30pm on 31 March 2007 with other countries from the UK, South Africa and New Zealand joining the campaign.

Next year, 13 cities are going to participate in Earth Hour event, including other Australian cities Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra. Chicago in North America and Toronto in Canada also signed up to mark the day. People from Tel Aviv in Israel, Suva in Fiji, Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense and Aalborg in Denmark reported about their wish to participate.
