Earth Hour 2009 - Turn Off Your Lights


Earth hour of 2009 is about to be observed on Saturday, March 28, 2009.
People around the globe are urged to turn off their light for one hour on March 28 between 8:30 to 9:30 P.M.
Earth Hour is a global climate change initiative, led by WWF (World Wildlife Fund) to demonstrate that individual action is important and it adds up to make a big difference in saving our earth from global warming.
To date, a record 900 cities and towns in 75 countries have committed to turn off their lights on March 28 at 8:30 P.M.
This includes Governments, business and individuals turning off their lights for an hour to support action on climate change.
Earth Hour was first held in Sydney, Australia in 2007. The idea took off in 2008, when there were 371 cities involved.
I started observing it from 2008. Even this year we are going to observe the earth hour.
I hope you'll also do your part to our mother earth.

  12. Thanks for promoting Earth Hour! Another way you can recruit people to the cause is by creating a Earth Hour group on Commit21.com. Simply create a group about one action that you will commit to do for Earth Hour and recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to get involved in that action as well. When it comes to climate change, simple actions can make huge differences and Commit21 leverages social media to influence networks of friends, family, and co-workers. Check it out at www.commit21.com

  18. Bali has its own initiative since thousand year a go with the special Hindu ritual called Nyepi Day... in this day for 24 hours there is no activity or else, turn off the lights night and day, no radio, no cooking, no traveling.

    The whole island will be dark and no activity at all except for an Ambulance and fire brigade if necessary!

    This year the Nyepi day will be due on the 26 of March 2009 and again I will enjoy myself in a very quiet pollution free moment for 24 hours...

    This day is intended to refresh our tiring soul and meditate adn send prayers to God...
