Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia with 2.2 million homes and businesses turning their lights off for one whole hour. Only a year later and this event had become a global sustainability movement with up to 100 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.
In 2009, at 8.30pm on March 28, we are asking people across the world to turn off their lights and join together in creating the vital conversation about the future of our precious planet. Earth Hour is a message of hope and a message of action. Everyone can make a difference.
It’s as simple as a flick of the switch. Join us for Earth Hour 2009.
Marilah kita sokong beramai-ramai hasrat murni ini. Rasanya tak sawan kot, kalau tak tengok tv atau bergelap dalam masa 1 jam je. Sayangi BUMI kita. Lain la kalau korang sanggup duduk kat Marikh atau Jupiter. Eheh ... So jgn lupa 28 Mac jam 8.30 hingga 9.30, switch off all ur light. Dok lam gelap diam2 atau korang buat ler apa2 aktiviti yang patut. Berzikir ke. Dapat gak pahala kan :)
