THE EARTH HOUR

Yesterday 26th of March, at 8:30 PM , lights switched off around the globe for Earth Hour. Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries.
What about you? Did you remember to turned off your lights? Our town hall did and here is the video of that moment. First, you can hear the bells of the clock ringing at 8:30 and then you can see how lights go dissappearing little by little. Emotional!
