Pakistan to observe 10th Earth Hour today

Drogheda Tidy Towns are kindly requesting that you please take the time to "switch off" on Saturday 25th March from 8:30 to 9:30 pm.

Dr Al Sada said in remarks on the margin of KAHRAMAA's celebration of the event today, that the State of Qatar joins the world in the celebration of Earth Hour, explaining that the started in 2007.

WWF said teams around the world would use Earth Hour this year to highlight climate issues most relevant to individual countries.

The Earth hour received a mixed response from the citizens this year.

One initiative to help manage electricity is a project to fit automatic timers to exterior building lights to ensure these are not left on during daylight hours.

If you're not shut off, you'll probably see it light up social media: There are other ways to mark it that include adding a frame to your Facebook profile picture or "donating" Facebook posts to share information on climate action.

Meantime, Sen. Sonny Angara yesterday urged young Filipinos to be "environment warriors" beyond Earth Hour.

Tata Power, which distributes in North and North-West Delhi, said it "also organised several candlelight marches during the Earth Hour in association with consumers and residents' welfare associations in its distribution area", towards sensitising on energy conservation.

Filipinos once again switched their lights off for a full hour on Saturday night as the Philippines participated in the annual global campaign for Earth Hour.

More than 170 countries and territories are joining in for Earth Hour, and this will be the 11th year in a row that this event has taken place.

It is to make people aware to live more sustainably and think a while before taking steps which may harm the planet.

In Poland and Bulgaria, people have been uniting to raise their voice against laws and policies that threaten biodiversity and the ecosystems that provide clean air, water, food and stable climate, underpinning our wellbeing as well as that of the planet. The goal of the initiative is to encourage individuals, businesses, and governments around the world to become more conscious of their ecological footprint and engage in dialog to seek real solutions to our growing environmental challenges.
