New Delhi: Delhiites will join millions across the globe to observe the Earth Hour on Saturday night by switching off electrical appliances for an hour.
They will once again join nearly a billion people in Mumbai, Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong, Sydney, Rome, Manila, Singapore, Dubai and over 6000 cities in over 130 countries across the globe to observe the Earth Hour on March 26, 2011.
"They will once again unite and switch off their electrical appliances and lighting fixtures for one hour starting 8: 30 pm (local time) to show their concern for the environment," an official said.
Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund), that urges households and businesses across the world to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour at the appointed time to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change.
