Earth Hour 2010

On Earth Hour hundreds of millions of people will come together to call for action on climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour. The movement symbolizes that by working together, each of us can make a positive impact in this fight, protecting our future and that of future generations.

This year Earth Hour falls on the 27th of March 2010 at 8.30pm. It is led by WWF Internationally and WWF-Malaysia,here at home. In my opinion this is the one of the most important events that will raise the bar and awareness about climate change and how each and everyone has a part to play in the future of our planet.

Some may say that what is 1 hour going to do for climate change? For me its way more than that hour! In that hour, more and more people will be aware about the issue. Locally you join the Earth Hour Facebook page or log on to the local site to find out about Earth Hour this year and what you can do! To start with head over HERE and pledge your support towards this good cause. You can also follow Earth Hour Malaysia on twitter for bites leading to the event in March

Last year, the response here in Malaysia was superb with major buildings, landmarks, organizations and Malaysians coming together to turn off their lights for 1 hour to support our planet!

Hopefully this year ,more Malaysians come together to support this cause because it matters and its important that we all know what we need to do individually and collectively. It requires lifestyle change,habit change for the sake of our planet.

Will you be taking part this year?
