It started with a question: How can we inspire people to take action on climate change? Then in March 31 2007, the Earth Hour started with Sydney turning off it’s light for 1 hour. The whole world was inspired with it with more and more country joined in the party. Earth Hour 2008 was a success with 24 cities joined in.
This year, Earth Hour will be taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. You might think that turning off lights for just 1 hour will not make any difference at all, yet the main aim for this event is to create awareness among us all.
Malaysia will be one of the city that joined in the party this year. Let’s join in and turn off the light for one hour tonight at 8.30pm until 9.30pm. Let’s show the world that we can stay united!~
To those who thinks of taking advantage during this hour, remember that this is the Earth Hour, not Crime Hour ya.. 😉
