arth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet that was started by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It first began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia and has since become a growing movement, with more than 7000 cities and towns around the world participating in the annual event. Earth Hour 2015 will take place on the 28th March from 08h30 to 09h30 local time.

The focus this year is based on â€œI will, if you willâ€? and #yourpower. The purpose of Earth Hour is not to focus on the carbon reduction exercise or the energy savings but rather to demonstrate support to change our current state of climate change and the race against extinction.
