Earth Hour Press Release


IT'S THE HOUR THE WORLD UNITES AGAINST GLOBAL WARMING.

On March 27 at 8:30 pm, the lights will go off for one hour in the Philippines and all over the world. It's called Earth Hour.

Earth Hour 2010 is a global call to action to every individual, every business, and every community. It is a call to stand up, to take responsibility, and to get actively involved in working towards a sustainable future. People across the world will turn off their lights and join together in creating a vital conversation about the future of our precious planet. Earth Hour 2010 aims to reach one billion people in cities and towns all over the world.

In the Philippines, this effort is being led by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-Philippines) , the Department of Energy (DOE), the Green Army Philippines Network, and the SWITCH movement.

Last year, the Philippines was #1 in participation worldwide. Let's be #1 again this year!
