When is Earth Hour 2017?

Earth Hour is more than just making a statement by turning lights off for an hour to raise awareness about climate change - it's part of worldwide efforts to address the problem, according to the nonprofit.

PEOPLE are being urged to join United Kingdom landmarks and famous sites around the world as they switch off their lights for an hour on Saturday night to back action on climate change. Among the locations, where Earth Hour is going to have an effect are: the Empire State Building, the Space Needle, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Colosseum in Rome, the Pyramids of Egypt, the Sydney Opera House and the Eiffel Tower. From Australia, it moved westward through Asia, where Hong Kong's skyline went dark in solidarity while at Myanmar's most sacred pagoda, the Shwedagon, 10,000 oil lamps were lit to shine a light on climate action. "That's why it's great that MPs are giving their support to this year's campaign and we hope they will inspire many others in their constituencies and communities to sign up and get involved on 25 March". Today, ten years later, electric lights will turn off in 7000 cities in an approximate 172 countries! "None of this would have been possible without the force that binds us all together - our collective determination to protect the one planet we all share". Marriott International wants its properties to share images of Earth Hour activities on social media.

So after the lights go back on think about what else you can do to make a difference.
