Remember our previous post regarding to the Earth Hour 2010 ? Earth Hour 2011 is coming soon in this month.
On 26th March 2011 millions of people around the globe will unite for one hour and switch off their lights to show that they care about our living planet.
After watching some video clip above, we believe you already have some concept on mind. Let’s us tell you some history about earth hour in Malaysia.
Since its inception three years ago, Earth Hour’s non-partisan approach has captured the world’s imagination and became a global phenomenon.Nearly one billion people turned out for Earth Hour 2009 – involving 4,100 cities in 87 countries on seven continents.
On Saturday 27 March, Earth Hour 2010 became the biggest Earth Hour ever. A record 128 countries and territories joined the global display of climate action. Iconic buildings and landmarks from Asia Pacific to Europe and Africa to the Americas switched off. People across the world from all walks of life turned off their lights and came together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet.
2009 was the first time Malaysia officially participated in Earth Hour bringing Malaysians to turn off their lights for one hour to show their support towards climate change. Many prominent landmarks switched off their lights and Malaysians celebrating. Its estimated that more than 5million Malaysians participated in Earth Hour.
On 26th March 2011 at 8:30 p.m. (mean tonight 8.30pm 🙂 ) , let’s us turn off our lights for 1 hour to show our support and care about our living planet – EARTH.
