 Earth Hour: 8.30pm-9.30pm, March 26, 2011

The Worldwide Fund for Nature's (WWF) global campaign has initiated a campaign called 'Earth Hour' wherein they have appealed to people to switch off lights for an hour on March 26 between 8.30pm and 9.30pm. This 'Earth Hour' is a part of collective action on climate change.

They have requested the residents and businesses to voluntarily switch off all the non-essential lights on that day. So far this is the largest environmental campaign in the history of our planet.
