Turn out. Take action.

CommemorativePoster-highrez Turn out. Take action. For World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour!

On March 31, 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour - Earth Hour. This massive collective effort reduced Sydney's energy consumption
by 10.2% for one hour, which is the equivalent effect of taking 48,000 cars off the road for a year.

Now the movement is global...

Be part of this historic event. Tomorrow, Saturday March 28, 2009, 8:30 pm local time

World Wildlife Fund is asking individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world to turn off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour – to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions.

In Indianapolis:
