Earth Hour will take place on Saturday, March 28, 2009, at 8:30 p.m. local time.

Earth Hour (https://www.earthhourus.org/) is a global initiative of WWF in which millions of people around the world will cast a vote in favor of action on climate change by turning off their lights for one hour on March 28, 2009 at 8:30 pm local time. By voting with their light switches, Earth Hour participants will send a powerful, visual message to their leaders demanding immediate action on climate change. WWF is the world’s leading conservation organization, working in 100 countries for nearly half a century. With the support of almost 5 million members worldwide, WWF is dedicated to delivering science-based solutions to preserve the diversity and abundance of life on Earth, stop the degradation of the environment and combat climate change.

“Earth Hour encourages people from all walks of life to examine how their individual actions affect the global problem of climate change — while making a powerful statement in support of solutions for a sustainable future,” said Leslie Aun, WWF’s vice president of media relations and managing director of Earth Hour US. “By supporting initiatives such as Earth Hour, Cox Enterprises sets a great example from coast to coast and makes a tremendous contribution as a valued corporate partner with far reaching impact.”
