UN to observe Earth Hour

The UN observes Earth Hour Saturday by turning off lights for one hour at its facilities around the world. The UN headquarters in New York will join and participate in the Earth Hour event.

The Earth Hour was launched in 2007 in Australia by the World Wide Fund Nature (WWF), a global conservation group.

The UN Secretary-general Ban Ki-moon said the UN was turning off lights “in solidarity with the men, women and children – 20 percent of all humankind—who live with no access to electricity.”

Calling Earth Hour “a symbol of our commitment to sustainable energy for all”, Ban said: “We need to fuel our future with clean, efficient and affordable energy.”

The Earth Hour event takes place  about one week after the vernal equinox – when night and day are of the same duration in both hemisphere ensuring that it will be dark everywhere in the world at 8:30pm.
