Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai, together with the Emirates Wildlife Society (EWS) and World Wide Fund (WWF), have organised #Connect2Earth and called upon the public to switch off unnecessary lights between 8:30pm and 9:30pm., today
Coordinated by WWF and other volunteer organisations, Earth Hour’s greatest strength is the power of people. Earth Hour is now the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, inspiring millions of people to take action for our planet and nature.
Starting as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney in 2007, WWF’s Earth Hour has grown to become the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, inspiring individuals, communities, businesses and organizations in more than 180 countries and territories to take tangible climate action for over a decade.
Today, different countries are organizing events according to environmental issues that they feel are most relevant to them. People around the world will switch off lights from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in their local timezone.
