Environmental Post – Earth Hour (March 2020)
Join the Global Movement – Celebrate Earth Hour on March 28th at 8:30 pm!
Earth Hour’s mission is uniting people to protect the planet by raising awareness of about climate change and encouraging positive action.
“Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage more than 172 countries and territories worldwide.”
Earth Hour is more than an event. It is a movement that has achieved massive environmental impact, including legislation changes by harnessing the power of the crowd.”
