Lights Out. One Hour. This Weekend.

This Saturday March 27, at 8:30 p.m. local time, join millions of people around the world to take action and send a message about climate change by participating in Earth Hour. Started by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to raise awareness about climate change, Earth Hour is a way to demonstrate how working together can have a positive impact. Last year, almost one billion people in more than 4,000 cities turned their lights off for one hour, as well as some New York City landmarks, including the Empire State Building, and the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges.
