Photo Friday | Earth Hour 2017

Can you spare one hour this weekend? Then you can participate in the annual global Earth Hour event!

Show your commitment to a healthy environment and take a stand for climate change action by simply switching off nonessential lights and electronics for one hour - Saturday, March 25 at 8:30pm in your own time zone.

You don't have to sit in the dark twiddling your thumbs and playing on your phone. Light candles for natural ambient lighting. Meditate. Brainstorm one or two ways you can make changes at home and at work to conserve energy. Get outside and go for a bike ride, or just hang out in your backyard or on your patio.

Organized by the World Wildlife Federation, Earth Hour started in Australia in 2007 and has grown to become a global movement promoting energy conservation and protecting the planet. Homes, commercial buildings and even entire cities are taking part in switching non-essential lights off for just one hour.  Many large cities around the world participate on a large scale, turning off the nonessential lights on iconic buildings.

If you participate, tag your pictures on social media with #EarthHour2017 and browse through photos taken around the world!
