# Earth Hour observed on March 28.

For a brief period in the night on 28 March, people around the world switched off lights from 8.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. it's due to Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is an annual tradition in which people switch off their lights to spread awareness about sustainability and climate change. Started by the World Wildlife Fund, it has taken place on March 28, 2020, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. local time.

The symbolic effort started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia, when the WWF encouraged 2.2 million people to turn off their lights for one hour to support action on climate change.
Since then, millions of people around the world have taken part. Landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, Sydney Opera House, the Empire State Building, Buckingham Palace, the Colosseum and Edinburgh Castle also have gone dark for an hour.

It's purpose is to bring together people who share one common goal: an eco-friendly future.
