What would it take for this video to come true?
One answer: the crowdsourced voices and actions of people across the globe, and of all ages.
During the course of one hour on the evening of Saturday, March 19, people around the world will be uniting — in thought, at least — around the project of protecting Planet Earth. Organized by the World Wildlife Fund, Earth Hour started in 2007 when residents of Sydney, Australia turned off their lights for 60 minutes and has expanded to 7000 cities worldwide — and the Internet. This year, Earth Hour Blue calls on the global citizenry to not just turn out non-essential lights from 8:30 to 9:30pm ET, but also to get involved in local and actions that, in previous years, have led to environmentally sound legislation and initiatives.
For the first time, in 2016 Earth Hour is asking you to donate your social media feed. By signing up, you’ll give permission for your Facebook timeline to be taken over by Earth Hour from 8:30 to 9:30pm ET on Saturday; the event will post news of climate change actions from around the world. You can also change your profile picture to show a special earth Hour image during this period.
