Earth Hour – I will if you will

Switch off your lights at 8:30PM today to take part in Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world. Today millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories will switch off their lights for an hour in a symbolic show of support for action on climate change and a more sustainable future.

If you’re based in Edinburgh, like me, there are loads buildings going dark for Earth Hour – Edinburgh Castle, the Scottish Parliament, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the National Gallery of Scotland and the Royal Scottish Academy, the Balmoral Hotel, Camera Obscura and the National Monument have all confirmed their lights are going out for the Hour.
