Earth Hour is held annually on the last Saturday of March. It started in 2007, in
Sydney and has since spread across the world. It is when millions of people and
thousands of business worldwide turn off lights and shut down most electrical
appliances to celebrate sustainability and show their support for strategies that will help
solve the problem of global warming.
The Earth Hour campaign has resulted in creating and raising awareness on
climate change issues on a very large scale. In 2015, Earth Hour will be held on
Saturday, March 28, 8:30-9:30 p.m. local time, all over the world. Thousands of towns
across more than 100 countries plan to take part. Because we waste a lot of fuel,
electricity and produce a lot of waste, sometimes the message for a cleaner world falls
upon deaf ears. However, through its years of progression, Earth Hour has helped
millions across the world to become environmentally conscious, and produced noticeable
“I Will If You Will” (IWIYW) is an Earth Hour movement to support positive activity
for the earth. The activities needed are dependent upon the individual or gathering.
It could be huge or little, and it may be a change in the basic way of life, or maybe
something that prompts political change. The movement inspires individuals to motivate their companions, family, partners and groups by imparting what they’re ready to do to secure the planet.
Let’s join and make a difference, maybe it’s just a small gesture but it’s really a
big help! Every nation, together as one!
